How to overlay text on player?

We have been using this videosjs component to overlay text on the video:

My attempts to use it with viBlast are failing.

Is it even possible?

If so, any links, hints, clues, guides ...?

If not, does viBlast offer an alternative?

use case: individual watermark per user (who is watching) so that pirates re-posting in public can be identified.

My understanding was that viBlast worked with videojs.....

Hi David,

Can you share an example demo page?

Viblast Player should work with the videojs-overlay. Maybe the issue is related with your stream?

You cannot protect your streams by using such a solution. It is easy for pirates to remove the HTML elements during the playback. There are other solutions solving this - like DRM, encryption, etc...
