    Without the use of the Wowza Transcoder you will have to add the logo on the client side.

    Take a look at the player systems like JW Player, Flowplayer or Strobe.

    You can add a logo overlay in VLC as well. Lots to read about on this with a google search.

    You are not forced to use the Wowza Transcoder to add an overlay, but it may be easiest. And the Transcoder will increase CPU usage.

    Follow the instructions in the Tuning Guide to achieve maximum performance of your server.

    Overlays on the actual video require re-encoding the video which is why you would need to use the transcoder or some other encoder before the video arrives at the Wowza server.
