Digital video watermarking has attracted a great deal of research interest in the past few years in applications such as digital fingerprinting and owner identification. H.264/AVC is the latest and most advanced video coding standard, but to this date, there are very few watermarking schemes designed for it. This is mainly due to its complexity and compression efficiency which presents a major challenge for any video watermarking approach. We developed a quantization-based video watermarking scheme, which is designed to work with H.264/AVC. Our scheme offers constant robustness at all compression rates without affecting the overall bite rate and quality of the video stream. Experimental results show that compared to existing methods, our scheme significantly outperforms existing methods under compression, transcoding, filtering, scaling, rotation and collusion attacks
