A group of moving visual images called frames along with corresponding text and sounds are called Video. The popularity of using digital video on Internet leads to illicit copying and dispe rsal of content. In order to avoid this, video watermarking technique is used as a preventive measure for illegal copying of copyrighted material. In this paper, watermarking algorithm for embedding a digital watermark in any video is proposed. The proposed algorithm preserve the video quality and provide security. The performance of the algorithm is analyzed using Peak Signal to Noise Ratio, Normalized Correlation and Mean Squared Error with respect to various videos. Experimental evaluation demonstrate that the proposed algorithm perform satisfactorily compared to traditional algorithms in terms of payload, transparency and video quality.
