A two second note to start this page

Ffmpeg has a number of ways of overlaying video/images into one stream, unfortunately at this point in time, their does not seem to be a way of doing it in side ffmpeg it self, which means you will have to use an external program.

The list below does not indicate an order of preference.


Vhooks[edit]

linux, mac (through may no longer be available in ffmpeg) ffmpeg 'input_video.mov' -vhook '/watermark.so -f overlay.jpg' 'output_video.mov'

!Replace /watermark.so with full path on your OS you may want to use same quality option, -sameq make sure that the water mark image is the correct size

Avisynth[edit]

windows, though there is a linux version but capabilities need to be tested.

Ffmpeg need to be build to be able to pass to/from avisyth

Graphic Program[edit]

Image magick, graphic magick, graphics 2d, adobe bridge, to mention a few.
