We are using Wowza Streaming engine and streaming live sources over a closed network.Network has a DC and using Active directory services.We need to show User information(user name) and IP address of the client system as a watermark or a subtitle on live video for some security reasons.Is it possible to embedd a code on JWplayer to do this?

There is no built-in functionality in our player to do this, but if you are able to access the user information and IP address via Javascript on the page, then you could write some custom functions to display this information in an overlay via Javascript and CSS. For the best compatibility with both Flash and HTML5 playback, my suggestion would be to use a wrapper <div> around the player’s <div> and then add your overlay to the wrapper. Please note that your overlay may not be visible when the user sets the video to fullscreen.
