    The two things you'll need is for your video to have a watermark on it and the watermark itself.
    You want the file to be in a .png format with a transparent background, as shown by the VisiHow logo saved in the left-hand box. This way, the file can be transparent on the back so it can be added over a video file without having to do a work.
