Markers and Overlays

← Back to documentation overview

If you are completely new to Videopath, it might be best to start with our Getting Started tutorial.

This tutorial gives you an overview of the Marker and Overlay options you have after importing your video into the Videopath Editor. Learn more about importing your video to the Editor here.


With markers you can indicate where your additional web content will be displayed in your video.

On the upper left corner of the Editor you have the option to drag and drop markers to your vertical timeline. In order to delete your marker just click and drag your marker to the right side.

You can change the position of your markers at anytime. Just drag and drop it to your desired position or input the specific time in the time stamp which can be found in the opened overlay, next to the title box.

You can also delete the marker by clicking on “Delete” in the upper right corner of the opened overlay in the Editor.



Overlays are where the magic happens. Here you can add web content to your videos, which can be accessed by clicking on the specific marker you have set. Overlays are always associated with a marker on the timeline. To add an overlay, add a marker. To edit the overlay of a marker, click on that marker in the editor.

The general overlay options you have:

  • Add a title to your overlay.
  • See the specific time where your marker/overlay should be positioned
  • Save and preview your overlay

You can add multiple content blocks to each overlay. The types of content you can add to your overlays are:

  • Text – provides a block of formatted text
  • Pictures – provides an upload field for an image
  • Button – provides a custom call to action button with a link out of your video
  • Media – adds a block with external media. Supported media types are: Youtube Videos, Vimeo Videos, Videopath Videos, Pinterest Pins and Soundcloud links.
  • Social media feeds – this block fills the entire overlay and can support a Facebook page, Twitter feed or Pinterest board.
  • Websites – this blocks the entire overlay and can fit a full website.
