I'd like to add stopwatch overlay with seconds counter to video file (in the middle, also insert some additional captions).

How can I easily achieve this?

TIP: if you use the words "time code" or Time-Code in searching for video time overlays you could be more sucessfull in searching. mediacollege.com/downloads/video/timecode timecodes are used in video to determine edit points and to sync 2 videos and all, and are more common than stopwatch. I dont know of any freeware yet that would do that. but there is chunks of video if the program will do an overlay/mix, it is a start. –  Psycogeek Jan 24 '12 at 11:26
