    Anything added to a video will involve a re-encode.

    I thought you didn't want to re-encode and degrade the quality.

    You have 2 choices:
    1. Use soft subs (which can easily be switched off by the viewer) or
    2. Re-encode with watermark hard-subbed into the video.

    No other alternative.

    If the video's going to be viewed online within a web browser, it might be possible for an embedded flash player to overlay a logo on playback.

    Look at the shuttle video on this page:
    http://www.longtailvideo.com/players/jw-player/gallery/

    The jwplayer and YouTube logos at the bottom are overlayed by the player, the NASA logo is on the original encoded video.
