Water mark on youtube videos?

I have recently been putting exercise videos on youtube to promote my (health website) is there a way that i could put a water mark on the video so when it plays it shows my website title???
right now the videos are saved on my pc in the video folder--what do i do from here?

Thanks
Nate

Hi,
It depends on how you are taking the videos.
You can put a watermark on the video with video editing software.
You can also do this with camtasia studio.

You tube has an option where you can put a title over the video.
I think it's a watermark so just check.

Do a search on you tube or google for - How to make a watermark or putting a watermark on a video.

Regards
Troy

The YouTube editor (once your video has finished uploading) allows you to add notes etc. to your video.

You could use that to add a title or watermark style link or logo.

The purpose of adding the "Watermark" is really two-fold. One it brands your website on the video and two it helps to prevent other folks for using your video without you getting credit. The YouTube title feature really doesn't work. It's best to use video editing software such as Camtasia, CamStudio or even Windows MovieMaker. There are also stand-alone video editing programs that are worthwhile, one I've used with success is WaterMark Master. You can download the trial version for free.
