Change Embedded Video Player Logo

This feature is exclusive to Pro and Advanced plan subscribers.

You can upload a custom logo to be displayed with the video player when videos are embedded into a custom page or into another page elsewhere on the Web.

The video player controls contains the controls that the viewer can use to play, pause, skip forward and maximize the size of the video. It is displayed when the video is started and when the mouse is hovered over the video.

Once the video is playing, the video player controls will automatically move out of the way of the video. The custom logo will also disappear along with the video player controls.

Please note that this is not the same as adding a custom logo or watermark to the video as the logo is only displayed whenever the video player controls are displayed. To display a logo or watermark on your video fulltime, the logo/watermark will need to be added to the video using a video editing program outside of Zenfolio before uploading the video to Zenfolio.
