    Ok found some good videos but looks like they already watermarked them with the url. How can I remove them so I can replace with my own? :)

    Can't unless you crop out that part of the video.

    Crop it is really the only option, unless you put an opaque box over it with your URL in it.

    Which is certainly not ideal.

    The way i do it if the watermark is not showing on top of an important area on the video, is just putting another watermark on top of it using a dark background. Like a little text box. That can be done with different video editing software. I'd recommend video edit magic

    you definitely can't remove it unless it's say, in a corner that has unimportant footage and you can just paste a colormatched thing over it. but there's no way to erase something that is embedded into the footage. it's just as much a part of the footage as the footage itself, once someone posts it online.

    Cool. Ok now were getting somewhere. I tried loading a file into flash cs4 but I could not put a box on top of any of the frames unfortunately even thought I made my New layer above the original layer. If I can just get a box on top of it and use an eyedropper tool to match the color were set. Any other recommendations that video edit magic? Also tried using Watermark master and I can do it for the last few frames.

    But I can not for the life of me get a rectangular box to appear at 2 different frames.
