    Adding an overlay to a recording video

    I'll do it as quick as possible: is there any way to add an overlay (some text, an image or stuff like that) to a video which I'm recording?

    Re: Adding an overlay to a recording video

    The video stream is taken directly from the camera to the encoder hardware and you only get the finished stream that has already been encoded. Alternatively you could use the preview stream to get the separate frames but then you a) don't get full resolution and b) would have to do the video compression yourself (and currently there are to my knowledge no libraries to help you with it - aside from it being not efficient to do the encoding on the CPU).

    PS: I don't know why my Post appears above yan_'s - I posted quite some time after he did.

    Normally, you can't modify picture when you record a video.
