So here it goes.
I have a few hundred videos that I want to upload to my site...
1) Should I upload 2 versions 360p for mobile and a bigger video for web users?
2) What size should be preferred. I think 640p or 720p Or is 1280x720p too big?
3) How should I watermark the videos?
3a) A semitransparent large watermark in the middle/centre?
3b) Small solid watermark (URL) in the lower right corner
The large watermark would be annoying while the small one (website URL) could be just edited out or 'overwritten' by another URL. I read that the traffic from watermark is very small or nonexistent. So is it worth the trouble?
I have hundreds of videos and it's time consuming to edit them all, esp. if the watermarks won't provide much protection. Or will they?
And since I want the same videos on the dozen websites I think it is not a great idea to embed a video from my other website. For example I would want to upload the same test drive video to sportscars, fastcars and myfriggincar websites. How do I watermark the video? Add all my 12 URLs or just my Brand Name to the video?
