Video Batch Compression with Added Watermark
" I’m looking for some video compression software that will let me add a text watermark in a corner. I’m not too savvy in this area and have been reading up on codecs and such but am still a bit confused. I’m recording videos with a Mevo camera which makes the files around 3-4GB. I want to get this down to around 300MB (which I’ve been doing by using AVS video converter) and then add a watermark so that the videos are visibly copyrighted (which I’ve been doing using MPEG Streamclip) so I can upload them to Vimeo. However, this is a long, involved process that uses two programs. I’ve tried using MPEG Streamclip by itself but I can’t make the files as small without losing quality. Can anyone recommend a good program with an easy-to-use GUI that will help me? I also need a batch conversion function! "
