    Question Custom Media Player?

    Is there a way to make it so that it has your logo in the bottom left corner of the media player?

    Thanks!

    This can be done with a Flash video player. You would have to create it to have an overlay with the logo. For a tutorial go to www.gotoandlearn.com.

    Your other option is to export the video with your logo as a graphic, so it would be embedded into the video file itself. If you are serving videos that you are not creating, then you would have to do the first option.

    Can you give me more details on how to do this?

    Thanks,

    You will need a video editing program, and it would depend on what program you had how to do it exactly. It is basically this: you will put the video track into the video, then put a second layer with the graphic on top. Do you have any programs? Do you have mac or pc, that makes a difference. If you have PC I will have to think of a free video editor thats good (besides Movie Maker) and for Mac you should probably have iMovie which can do it.

    Movie Maker, far as I know, just doesn't allow you to do much with video, and won't allow you to overlay an image across the entire timeline (maybe but I hate the program anyways). Here are two lists of software,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...iting_software
    http://camcorders.about.com/od/video...reeEditing.htm

    This is a big list, not sure if I can recommend one specifically. I use Premiere Pro, which is Adobe, and costs a lot. If you don't want to spend much money find a free one and read the documentation to see how to put an image overlay on the video.

    If you are planning on doing this to a lot of videos, it will take A LONG TIME. Please realize anytime you start to work with the raw video, you are going to take a lot of computing power and time to get things done.

    I don't know why you are wanting to do this, or where the videos are coming from. If you are having someone else make your videos, ask them to put the logo in for you - otherwise you will be recompressing the video which will degrade the quality.
