FAQ: Text on top of video

Yury Udovichenko 2017-07-10 06:29:45 UTC in WMSPanel functionality

Q: How do I draw some text on top of any outgoing stream?

A: You need to use our Live Transcoder with
drawtext filter.

1. Install Live Transcoder and get a license to make it work: https://wmspanel.com/transcoder/install

2. Create a scenario with a decoder for your incoming stream. Check one of our videos as example: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRDQWjeuSAkM6itDPes-r8HrN95ub36ue

3. Add custom filter. Specify its name as drawtext, and set its value to something like:

fontfile=/usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSans-Bold.ttf: text='%{localtime\:%T}': fontcolor=white@0.8: x=7: y=700

or

fontsize=45: fontfile=/usr/share/nimble/fonts/VCR_OSD_MONO_1.001.ttf: text='%{localtime\:%F %T %Z}': fontcolor=white@0.8: x=15: y=1000: box=1: boxcolor=black@0.4

4. Add encoder for outgoing stream and save scenario.

That's it, your outgoing stream will now have text with local time of the server.

This is an example of Linux.
How it works on Windows?

this is example for transcoder and it should work the same way for linux/windows

There is no /usr/ share path in Windows how it works?
