Get rid of watermark of projectname in the rendered video


I am a new user of kdenlive and going to make a simple video (a few minutes long).
It have a short mp4 format clip and a waw audio channel.
I can render it to mp4 format, but in the beginning of the video have an overlay (a watermark text with projet file name) a few second long. I did not change any settings of it.
How can I get rid of it?
Where is the default setting what I have to remove?


Are you watching the rendered video with VLC?

Yes, it have to write to it? :slight_smile:

IIRC, VLC always displays the filename of the video being played. Perhaps you can switch that off in the settings. But it has nothing to do with Kdenlive. All good :wink:

Thank you, it is! :slight_smile:

Tools > Preferences > Subtitles / OSD > Show media title on video start
I don’t have any clue why the VLC developers seem keen on making this the default setting. It is always the first thing I turn off.

It’s more useful when you have a long playlist that you may be skipping through than when you’re just using VLC to play a single file.

(not a VLC developer and don’t know what they were thinking, but it’s why I leave it enabled :slight_smile:
