YouTube has recently rolled out an update to add a new feature known as “InVideo Programming”. In a simple sense, this feature lets you add a branded logo, or a video across all of your YouTube videos. Doing this is really easy and is very good for branding purposes. Videos with a logo look more professional, and that’s why you should try out this new feature of YouTube.
To access this feature, from the settings section, you need to click on “InVideo Programming”, as that will help you to add logo, image, or watermark to your existing videos with just a few simple clicks. This image will be displayed at the corner of all your videos, or you can also feature a single video across all your other videos.
This image can be your brand’s logo, or you can use YouTube buttons to promote your YouTube channel inside all of your videos.
After choosing “Feature a channel”, you can either have your YouTube avatar featured, or you can upload a custom image also. For best results, upload an image of 800×800 pixels.
You can also select the position of the image and the display time during which you want the image to appear on the video.
To feature a video, you can click on “Feature a video”, and then choose the video that you would like to feature. Select the position where you want this video to appear and the duration of it. This is a great way to promote a video across all your videos.
YouTube uses annotations to display the images on the video. The problem with this is that if a YouTube viewer turns-off the annotations, then your logo/image won’t be visible.
This feature is perfect for those who want to give a better branding to their YouTube videos. Users can also promote new video to gain more exposure. Go ahead, try it out.
