How to Add Watermark to YouTube Videos 2022

This guide will introduce how to add watermark to YouTube videos. We will talk about different kinds of watermarks including logo, text, and signature. We will also mention two tools to help add watermarks. They are YouTube Studio and WorkinTool Watermark Eraser.

To begin with, you can do a lot to your YouTube videos with watermarks. The crux of the matter is to protect your copyright. In addition, you can add a branding logo to raise the awareness of your business. Besides, if you are an individual video producer, you can add your personal signature. Moreover, you can just insert some text to protect your copyright.

There are two main methods to add watermark into your YouTube videos:

  1. Upload your videos to YouTube Studio and edit your videos.
  2. Insert watermark into your videos before uploading via WorkinTool Watermark Eraser.

How to Upload Logo Watermark on YouTube Studio

YouTube Studio is a website inbuilt video editor. It allows you to upload videos and edit them before sharing with the public. The platform provides assembly editing with trim, split, and blur. In addition, it also allows uploading a watermark.

  2. Find Customization in the left sidebars.
  3. Go to settings for Branding.
  4. Find Video watermark section. Then click UPLOAD.upload watermark on youtube studio

  7. After all the settings, click PUBLISH in the upper right corner to save the changes.

Although this method is convenient, there are some noticeable shortcomings:

  • It is fixed. You can’t change the place.
  • You can’t set the transparency. So it may block information in this area if it appears in the entire video.
  • It is not accessible to add more than one watermarks to YouTube videos.

As a result, this method is best for adding logo into YouTube videos at the end of the screen. It helps to raise the awareness of your brand after viewers watching the whole content of your video.

If you are intended to use text watermark, put it at another place, or make it transparent, we advise using a watermark editor before upload your video.
