See more: Video WaterMark ffmpeg
I am working on a video processing project and using ffmpeg for watermarking. I achieve exactly what i want but the problem is that the process is very very slow.

I am using a Intel Smart 2nd gen family Core-i5 Processor with 4GB RAM on a 32 bit operating system Microsoft Windows-8 on a 64-bit CPU.

I tried watermarking a video [mp4] of length 1:30 Min. size of file is 1.5GB

Whole process accomplish in 3 Hrs to watermark my video file and what i noticed while process is that ffmpeg was processing 28 frames per sec first and then later it slow down up to 20 frames per second. a normal human watch video with frame rate of 30 frame per second and process was even slower then this that's why it took more time [3 Hrs] then the actual length of video itself [1:33]

What i think to make process efficient is to use ffmpeg Source Code[^] and modify it somewhat...

I want to ask if someone have achieve fast watermarking before by any other way or have modified this code to achieve faster process in order to save my time...

Hard to say what's wrong with this question. I would say, it is addressed nowhere.

Apparently, we are unfamiliar with the code you attempted. At the same time, it's only natural that video processing, due to shear volume of data, takes considerable amount of resources and time. I often work with ffMpeg and know that some operations take quite a good amount of time, too, so. Estimation of performance of different products is just a matter of some research. I doubt you can reasonably expect a lot of more essential advice... :-)
