Drawing dynamic text on video stream

Postby SibirFox » Wed Oct 11, 2017 2:01 pm

I'm trying to change text dynamically every 5 minutes on my video stream
This is the argument im using
Code: Select all
-vf "drawtext=fontsize=40:fontfile=FreeSerif.ttf:text='hello world':x=(w-text_w)/2:y=(h-text_h)/2"

I tried 'c' in the FFMPEG console windows but I can't get it right, I always get a parse error.
Is there an example of how to use this options?
