Not sure what I am doing wrong?

cloudinary_icon_image exists and is a real public id of the cloudinary watermark. Im copying this directly from the documentation and it says 400 always.


Any ideas would be great, thanks!

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    The issue is that the cloudinary_icon_image is in a folder called samples. The folder is considered as part of the public_id, so you will need to include that. The full public_id is actually samples/cloudinary_icon_image
    One thing to note is that when the pulic_id includes slashes ( as it does in the case of a folder structure ), you will need to replace the slash with a colon.

    If you check the following URL, it works now 😊

    You can read more about image overlays in our documentation here:

    I hope this helps. If you have any questions at all, do not hesitate to ask.

    Kind regards,

    Tia

    @wuzzy - I modified your transformation set to be a little more aesthetically pleasing too, by adding w_100 to scale the logo down and g_north_east to place it in the top-right corner of your video. I think it looks slick! https://res.cloudinary.com/dn8sizuse/video/upload/l_samples:cloudinary_icon_image,y_10,x_10,w_100,g_north_east/y3cwtqbwcweqitcmfajv.mp4


    Hope this helps!
