kind of off topic…but I’ve noticed that the user’s email is watermarked over the videos to prevent people sharing the videos outside of university. A brilliant piece of security.

I’m developing some members only videos of my own and would very much like to know how to do this. Is it a commercially available option? Or some wacky coding going on behind the scenes?

Thanks!

Our video player (flowplayer) offers an option to overlay an image - there’s a server-side script that generates an image with the username on the fly.
