How to add dynamic watermark on videos?

DRM-X provides you with the powerful Dynamic Watermark. It will help you protect your videos from Digital Recording Equipment much more powerfully.

  • Watermark Text: Show Company's name and the user's name who is playing the video right now. It will help you find out which user records your videos illegally.
  • Dynamic Position: Divide the screen into 25 different areas, you can choose any of them to show the watermark.
  • Random Change Watermark Area: the position of watermark will change at times while the user plays your videos. So it will be useless for the user who records your videos to resize the screen.
  • Random Frequency: Set the frequency of changing the position of the watermark dynamically.
  • Set font size
