Hello:

Didn't know where to post this on the site, so I am trying here. I may be selling some videos, but on a one-by-one basis direct to seller. So I anticipate maybe 50 videos sold. I am concerned about piracy and realize that watermaring or code to prevent that is probably unrealistic.

BUT, I am thinking about inserting a unique identifier in each video. That way if I see a pirated version, I may be able to ID the person I sold it to. Such as, insert a image somewhere in the middle of the video for a brief second. Like in the 15th video I sold, there would be the number 15, in a mysterious spot in the video. Or maybe a sound.

I figured I would ask you guys since I want an easy way and thought maybe someone had one.

Hello rhodymark,

Copy protection is a complex field, & one I could not offer advice about. Certainly, no CyberLink product has any such related function beyond the suggestion you've made.

There are commercial operations that can do this, but I doubt you'd want to invest $$$ for such a small home-based project.

Thanks. I think I will just insert a number in each video a few times. 15th video sold, gets the number 15. Not to prevent copying, but to ID anyone who does piracy. Just windering if anyone has done that.
