Have a program that adds watermark to video and pictures, however, there are also a LOT of programs that easily remove watermarks. As for taking them to court to prove the video was your, well, that would be be a lengthy and expensive course of action unless your making a lot off the video and the other party is as well. Any watermark program I've found and tested is just as easily removed by other programs. So basically, it's all useless.

I always thought a "watermark" is something that is supposed to be INVISIBLE unless you took extra trouble to look for it. The "watermarks" that are always offered here just DEFACE the photo. So it is not a problem for a defacing watermark to need to re-encode a photo, as the watermarked version is a "proof" or sample; and you contact the owner to licence the full resolution version. So the defacing watermarks offered here that produce inferior copies of the original are no problem. The photos they make are of no use anyway.

What I always considered a true watermark is one where the photo looks untouched by ugly text or scribblings. The photo LOOKS normal. If you found your photo used without permission you could prove it was yours by the "watermark" that was a DRM signature invisibly encoded into the image. A plug-in to most photo viewers could detect it, but your eyes would not see that it was marked. Best of both worlds!


Why bother even looking a a visibly defaced photo with "watermarks" that deface the image? You can get people to properly enjoy the images and still be protected without these "graffiti" makers!

Let's see some true watermark software that does not ruin viewing.

Re # 13, if you have watermarked it and someone removes that for their purposes, you have proof of your ownership (and date of watermarking, hopefully) and can pursue legal action. Of course, that is expensive.

#7: "I would love if the the watermark was interactive"

Google & you'll find various ways to accomplish this. Video is video in that regard, & all anyone can do is play it -- the interaction part is added [grafted] on & implemented in the player.

"*Forces you to convert videos"
"You are forced to convert input videos to a different video format. Sure, you can select the same output format as your input video but it still converts input videos — no ability to add watermark without reencoding"
.

Really No Offense or anything intended, but yeah, whenever you add something to a video, or adjust it's colors, add FX, crop or in any way alter it, the whole thing has to be re-encoded, regardless the software you use. When adding a watermark or title etc. there are only a few exceptions... You can try to force display of CC or subtitles in some players -- Some players will display text stored in a separate, specially formatted text file, or you can sometimes add either a plain text CC or a graphics-based subtitle stream to to the existing video without re-encoding. There are also a few methods I think to display whatever overlay on top of Flash video, but like trying to force CC/subtitle display, it's not hard to save & re-use the untouched video itself. Depending on how the video's encoded [what format was used, e.g. mpg2], some software will do smart encoding or smart rendering [it can go by either name], which means only altered video frames are re-encoded, with everything else written as-is to a new file. Using that it's easy to add whatever watermark or overlay the software allows, but only for a short time periodically throughout the video -- it would take less time to re-encode, & *may* not be as intrusive to your viewers, but the video formats and the software you can use for smart rendering are both limited.

Before you add whatever overlay, it helps to consider the quality level you want or need, since it's very common for video nowadays to be scaled to different sized screens/resolutions -- when/if your overlay is scaled larger or smaller edges may become pixilated unless you or your software does a bit of extra work. The traditional way to minimize this is to feather edges of graphics or text, & then add a feathered shadow. Simpler graphics, like text, can also look worse than more complicated artwork that looks good without being as sharp or well-defined. Adding animation or movement can also help -- problem edges & such aren't static, aren't in one place long enough that your audience spots them.

Pro's use higher end software for this sort of thing, then pay for often expensive add-ons or plug-ins just for titling etc. -- it's not so much that the software lets them do a better job than you can with free or cheaper tools IMHO, but that that stuff lets them do more faster, & time = money. In many [most?] cases you can do the same graphics work in an image editor for example, then import that for your overlay. Where Wondershare video products tend to differ from the rest of the pack is that rendering your video may use different encoders than the ffmpeg that's almost standard fare, but it depends on your output format whether you'll benefit or not. Wondershare is a bigger company so their products are usually more polished, but when it comes to the actual overlaying of graphics on your video, with the exception of being able to add movement, the results shouldn't be much if any different than using any of the other converters that also let you add watermarks. IOW if you're set up now using some other app to add your logo to videos, unless you want to go to the extra bother of adding movement or animation, there's a good chance you won't see any reason to switch.

This program is better than you think because you don't have to
use it as a watermark program if you don't want to.You can use it
as a video converter only by not putting any text or watermark on to
your vidoes.

End the competition will sell you a water mark remover for the same amount of money.
Unless a water mark can not be removed this software is useless.

Was able to add more animated GIFs that I downloaded from the Internet and put them in the
c:\Program Files\WonderFox Video Watermark\WonderFox Video Watermark\Example\Animated folder.


All that was necessary then for them to appear at the end of the animated GIFs interface was to change the file name so they sequenced with the other animations. Even animations of animals running across the screen worked well, the kids are going to love these little videos and they can even make their own.

I used to put watermarks on my videos and photoshop projects , until I got an email from a well known website who offered me an obscene amount of money for the use of one funny little clip...with one condition: get rid of the watermark !
I did..had a lovely holiday out of it.

Don't know where you live, but I can ensure you that "VirtualDub" and "Flash OwnerGuard" are both FREE!!!

If "Flash OwnerGuard" is not enough for you, it means that you are an extremely professional chap who can afford buying more sophisticated and expensive software.

So why moaning??

The installation was without any problems on Win 64.

The programme started quickly and its interface is clear and easy to manipulate. I managed to add Text, picture and shape watermark without any problems within seconds.

The production of the video was quite lengthy (30 min video - 20 min conversion) but the resulting file was even smaller than the original (30MB to 19 MB) while there was no obvious difference in the quality of the output.

You can see the file here: http://www.aj3000.org/demo/demo.html

The software is great I only do not see why anyone would watermark their videos if they want to share them. I would love if the the watermark was interactive but as far as the software is concerned it is excellent.
Thumbs up.

I checked out your alternatives: Apowersoft and Armjisoft. I'm sure they work, but they are certainly not free. They both have ridiculous limitations unless you buy a license. I didn't check out your alternatives to placing watermarks on files, but I will try this one out and see what I think.

Excellent tool today but to add a watermark on your videos you can also use freeware alternatives like VirtualDub and/or Windows Movie Maker:

http://gaizy.hubpages.com/hub/Tutorial-How-to-watermark-your-videos-with-Windows-Movie-Maker-WMM

But did you know that it's also possible to remove any watermarks & logos from any videos for FREE??

http://www.apowersoft.com/remove-watermark-from-video.html

So what?? LOL!

Another smarter and more professional way to protect the digital ownership rights of your videos is actually to add on them a DRM Protection....how about doing that for FREE??

An extremely easy program to use with an excellent interface and the ability to add customised images make it a rather versatile program.
I added a watermarks consisting of an animated image plus text without any problems.
It's not so much as a watermark program that interest me but because of its versatility it may be possible to make amusing little videos for the grandchildren.
So granddads going to play :-)

I'm interested in knowing which version this is?
As this link http://www.videoconverterfactory.com/video-watermark/check-latest-version.html says the latest version is version 2 as previously given here, and this link http://www.videoconverterfactory.com/video-watermark/ says the latest version is version 2.5
Not the most organized company as both links came from within the program itself.
