About

This Utility API adds a watermark to the video content that is provided.
It accepts video files, urls of the videos, Youtube and Dailymotion urls, but may encounter potential issues in terms of functionality and accessibility. These issues can be because of the change in their policies governing content sharing, embedding, or playback mechanisms.
This utility can provide a variety of benefits, especially for businesses or individuals who want to protect their videos from unauthorized use, and want to promote a brand or business. This can improve the overall appearance and security of an video by including a logo or other identifying information in the watermark.
Please note: As a user of ApyHub's video watermarking service, you are solely responsible for any video content you upload and watermark, and use through our platform. You acknowledge that you have the necessary rights, permissions, and authorizations to use and apply watermarks to the videos you provide. ApyHub does not verify the legality, authenticity, or ownership of the content you submit. Thank you for respecting the intellectual property of the content creators!
