Hi I want to add watermark png image to video with hardcode substitle .srt file at same time what changes i should do the to following line

ffmpeg -i input.mkv -i watermark.png -c:v libx264 -crf 28 -preset veryslow -filter_complex overlay; output.mp4
  • Use -filter_complex when your filter involves more than one input. This is called a complex filtergraph as opposed to a simple filtergraph.

  • Use of the movie multimedia source filter is not required.
