Hopefully this is the right place to ask this, I searched the forums before posting.
I am currently trying to find some sort of software that is able to put a watermark onto a video. The only thing is, the file needs to exported as an MP4 format which is why I cannot use VirtualDub. I am using handbrake to encode/convert MKV to MP4 (with subtitles burned in), unfortunately it does not allow me to add a watermark.

Is there any kind of free software that will simply add an watermark?

Everything 'free' I can find, has either got a ton of PUP's or some form of malware bundled.

I figured I would ask, maybe there was one good program hidden. Everything I found just looked terrible. Thank you for searching :)

A normal piece of video editing software will let you do this, it is effectively a type of compositing where you will be adding an image over the top of your video which is mostly alpha except where your watermark logo is. If you make your watermark logo as a png file with total transparency (an alpha channel) over most of the image and half transparency on the logo itself in software like GIMP then when you find any piece of simple video editing/compositing software you would be able to layer this image over the video and export the result to get a watermarked video. In the past i used a piece of software to do this called wax 2.0 but it might alos have PUPs and other nasties in it's installer these days, as I haven't visited it's site for years if it's even still available.


Link to the site is below, would check WOT (web of trust) ratings and virus scan it with multiple products (try virustotal ) before you even think about running it, if you think it might be the solution to your problems.
