I am sure you would have seen Vout/Overlay option in your VLC Player but would have left it at that as you would have been at a loss to appreciate what exactly it is and how it works. Let me tell you all about it today. Overlay is an awesome feature of VLC Player which allows you to spread the video on the desktop wall in multiple windows. This allows you to individually handle and manage the different videos separated in different windows. This feature looks even more amazing when seen on a High Definition Screen or projector. To go about the same, go to the left side of the options where enabling Add Text option can help you add text to each window as well.
One can also overlay a LOGO onto a video as a watermark. Haven’t you seen Company logo being shown as a watermark in one corner of the running video reminding you which company owns the video. Now imagine being able to do the same yourself to your own video. This feature is particularly useful if you happen to make a lots of video files yourself for commercial purposes such as posting them on YouTube or on your own blog, this feature will be a life saver to protect your videos from being misused by others. While people can watch them, no one should be able to stake claim to them. You can ensure its prevention by adding your logo to all your originally created videos. To use this feature, go to Logo tab and specify the full path of logo image where it is residing, adjust the transparency and decide the position. This is an awesome feature which is not known to most of the people and can make you a Hero amongst your colleagues, friends and classmates in your presentations.
