clockoverlay

This element overlays the current clock time on top of a video stream. You can position the text and configure the font details using its properties.

By default, the time is displayed in the top left corner of the picture, with some padding to the left and to the top.

Example launch lines

 gst-launch-1.0 -v videotestsrc ! clockoverlay ! autovideosink

Display the current wall clock time in the top left corner of the video picture

 gst-launch-1.0 -v videotestsrc ! clockoverlay halignment=right valignment=bottom text="Edge City" shaded-background=true font-desc="Sans, 36" ! videoconvert ! autovideosink

Another pipeline that displays the current time with some leading text in the bottom right corner of the video picture, with the background of the text being shaded in order to make it more legible on top of a bright video background.
