A common practice among many of our customers - watermark images or videos to give credit for the owners and/or to protect their high-res original resources.

E.g, The original video -

Now, let’s add a watermark on the entire video by using the overlay parameter (l_ in URLs) -

You can also confine the watermark for a few seconds by specifying the start and end offset (so_ and eo_ in the URLs). For example, let’s make the watermark visible for 2 seconds - starting from the 0:03 mark -
