Is it possible to have a "watermark" over a video while it plays? I saw this post by a co-worker viewtopic.php?f=34&t=43578 that says that the customvideoplayer project does this, but I took a look at the project, and there is no "watermark" to speak of (or maybe I'm just not seeing it).
Has anyone ever created a watermark on a video that's playing? If so, can you share your thoughts?
customvideoplayer uses roImageCanvas and roVideoPlayer to put video and a static image on the screen at the same time. It isn't a watermark, but the same principles can be used to do what you're trying to do.
You could re-encode the video with the watermark present. flaskmpeg does that easily, and then the watermark will be there no matter what plays it (iPhone, PC, Roku, etc etc etc) As for rovideoscreen with an roimagecanvas on top, I haven't tried that so I don't know.

You can experiment with it, but I don't think so. You can lay a roImageCanvas over a roVideoScreen, but with the canvas on top, remote key presses will be caught by the canvas instead of the video screen, so trick play will not work. There may be a creative workaround, but the recommended method is roVideoPlayer.
