Introduction

By adding a watermark to videos can help stop your videos from unauthorized use and copying. You can select the end-users Email Address, IP Address, Phone Number, and Date as the watermark. When the end-users play your video, this information will be displayed on the video player. The watermark moves around the screen randomly. So, it is difficult to remove it or blur it. Also, you can adjust the opacity of the watermark on the player so that your end-users can enjoy the video without getting annoyed. You can change the position of the watermark as well. Make it static or dynamic by selecting the options. If you want to see how the watermark appears on the player, then you can test it in our demo player without taking a free trial.

 

How to Add Watermark

  • To add a watermark to your videos, click on “Player” in your Muvi CMS.
  • Select the check box “Add Watermark on The Player”.
  • There are 4 options available to add as your watermark i.e. “User Email Address”, “IP Address”, *"Phone Number" and #Date”. If you wish you can add all these 4 options or any one or two or three of them. Select the check box according to your preference.
Note:

  • The Email Address, IP Address, Phone Number that appears as the Watermark on the player is the end user's email address. phone number and/or IP address, not the store Admin's email address, phone number, and/or IP Address.
  • #The date, which appears as the Watermark is the UTC date of the user.
  • *The phone number will only appear as a watermark when it is added as a default field on the registration page. You can add a Support Ticket to add a phone number as a default field for the end-users on the registration page. When the end-users will add their phone number during the registration, that will appear as a watermark.

 

 

 

How It Appears On The Player

  • Once you selected your options, you can see the watermark on the player when you play any video on your website.

 

Note: Here Email Address, IP Address, and Date, all the three options are selected as a watermark. It is difficult for any user to remove the watermark as it is not fixed at one part of the screen but moves all over the screen.

  • When the end-users play the video, the opacity will be changed.
