Add an Overlay to Video

This is more for security applications like a dash cam setup, or education environments where student projects are pre-labeled, rather than for creative applications, as it will modify the video image with text that can’t be removed.

If either horizontal or vertical size is zero, the size will be computed automatically.

Overlay vertical size 40
Overlay horizontal size 0
Offset from the edge 10
Limit display time unlimited

Note: All text box support \n for a new line.

Any start message here:
