The Overlay Page

This page allows you to overlay some text on top of the video, such as a broadcaster's name. You may also display some images at the bottom of the video, such as a Creative Commons logo.

To overlay text over the video, select the Show text in the upper left corner option and enter your text in the field.

Select the Show logos in the bottom right corner option to overlay Creative Commons and Flumotion logos over the video.

The worker drop-down choice allows you to choose what computer this component should run on, for instance if the camera is attached to a different computer that is available via the network. This allows you to distribute tasks across several server computers. See the Deployment chapter to learn how to create extra workers. The Configuration Assistant would then offer these workers in the drop-down choice after connecting to their manager.

See also the overlay-converter component reference documentation.
