How to protect video from piracy?

More and more people upload their video files to internet sites, and problem of video protection from unauthorized usage becomes more and more important.

The most effective way is to apply watermarks – for example text with site’s address or graphical logotype. Even if someone uses such video content, it will only advertise the author.

However, it is very simple to cut out logotypes of such type using any program for video editing.

Cut off part of video giving up small part of a frame - and your video will lose any protection! Or if watermark is displayed only at the beginning, – simply to cut out video scene with watermark…

Of course, watermark could be applied in a way that it couldn’t be cut out, but at that image will suffer as will contain one big watermark.

Solution I’m offering here is very simple. You need to create watermarks which would appear in different places, be shown during some period of time and faded, appear again but in other places (or the same) and so on several times while playing video.

Evidently, for one thing, it’s difficult to cut off such watermark (especially if it appears in different places), to cut out the scene if there’re several ones, and the main thing - every such watermark needs individual processing - it will tire anyone!

And how to make several watermarks that would appear and fade randomly. I can suggest to use Watermark Master program. Using its wizard it’s simple to implement that.

In a nutshell, run Watermark Master (Google), following wizard instructions – select text watermark, click Next until you get Watermark Timeline Settings, set time for watermark displaying, 10 seconds, for example; using Advanced button, select “Display repeatedly” option - set time for pause between watermarks displaying and that’s all!

However wizard will create only one watermark, if you need more – go back to main application and Copy-Paste required number times, for every new watermark, mix Timeline – and that’s all.

Hope, it will help someone, if you have any questions, write and I’ll answer more fully.

Well this thread is really helpful to me as I had some video and I want to make them copyright protected. I don’t want anyone to copy my video and use for some other purpose. I had heard about this but never come across and get such a wonderful knowledge regarding it.

It is a codec tool to protect the videos. Another method is the EXE only works when the IP information, software or hardware is listed as a member of your video site membership. There is always a crack, but if you want to encrypt repeatedly making it difficult to decode.

I get nervous when someone joins the Forum and in a few moments to post an for the software you download to do something, you can already do with a non-linear editing, and perhaps the kind of Paint graphics program that comes free with the computer operating system.

Another method is the executable only works when the IP information, software or hardware is listed as a member of his video membership site. Whenever there is a crack, but if you want to encrypt on several occasions and it is difficult to decipher.

That’s a pretty useful tip espcially for those who enjoy making their own videos whether you are using a wired or wireless internet connection..

Piracy is one of the biggest problem on every country whether businesses or personal. I would suggest to put a piracy content inside the video and its label to get aware the people about the charges they might get after they caught.

Piracy is the biggest thread in the world.  Anybody attracts with free of cost of piracy.  That is why, many people attract for that.  If we accept piracy, it means directly we are losing them.  That means, we do not encourage piracy.  And, we do not use the piracy.

Thank you

Watermarks on video are annoying for those who watch it legally. The only way to protect video is to control distribution channels, but even stream video can be copied an reproduced
