    So yesterday, after I discovered the new updated InVideo Programming settings, I built myself an alpha-ed watermark.

    So feel free to answer the question above, or leave a comment below! I'd like to hear your two cents!

    Here's the watermark so you can see it!

    I don't use it anymore because I put my watermark in the corner right when I edit my video, it's safer that way

    I'm not sure if InVideo Programming is available for all YouTube or just partners, but it's the ability to add both a link to check out another video you've published, and a separate picture link to go right to subscriptions.

    The latter used to be connected to my G+ profile picture, but now they call it a "watermark". A small square of space that they suggest should be an alpha-ed image (transparent background)

    My show logo as it stands is far too wide for that to work, so I made that little square version of my logo that kinda gets the point across.

    I may update it a little.

    I also make add my own watermark while editing. It's more reliable, that way if my video is embedded somewhere and annotations are off, people will still know the video is by me.

    I hear that (the lower right side part). The problem is that this new "Watermark" system makes that little subscribe widget locked in the upper right corner. You can't fix it's location I think.

    That's good to know Kate (Caitlin)! I'm glad it's open to everyone. I think it's starting to grow on me. I like that my videos have a brand on them.

    I would prefer to have it in a different corner though, if youtube doesn't do this I think a lot of people are going to complain.

    Yeah, me too. But it's understandable from a unity standpoint. They launched "YouTube One" in order to clean up and help brand YouTube as a whole against the sea of start-up video hosting companies out there. Making EVERYONE'S watermark in the same spot helps all YT videos feel like they're coming from the same place.
