    i have some videos that get lots of views on youtube and i want to add watermarks to them so that means i have to download them to my pc and add the watermarks, but wont i lose all the views for the videos? since when i upload it again it will be seen as a new video. Is there any way to keep the old video settings (views,ratings) and edit it? :confused:

    Hi.


    As far as i know there isnt a way to alter an already uploaded video once its live on YT.

    Only thing you can do is change the info with a url.

    Best thing you can do it this point is put a big bright annotation over the watermark. Most ppl never remove the annotations anyways.
