    This is the command I have right now...

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i inputfile.flv -vhook '/usr/local/lib/vhook/watermark.so -f watermark.png -m 1 -t 222222' -an outputfile.flv
    But I don't understand the threshold thing... the PNG I'm using has a transparent background but with 222222 the transparency is gone and that's what most people are using for similar pngs :hs:

    Anybody care to explain this threashold option? :x:

    Why not just watermark the SWF player?

    Are you going to be having exclusive videos? Otherwise its pointless if it's the same video from a different site.

    Just giving you suggestions though, no listen to me bra

    and truthfully if someone wants your video, it is not hard to strip a watermark off of it

    We used a little trick with encoding a watermark onto the video and an inverse one on the player with the player its noticable but not overly without the player the watermark was very noticable.
