This works for me:

Code: Select all

drawtext=fontfile=Envy_Code_R_Bold.ttf:timecode='00\:00\:00\:00':r=50:x=(w-tw)/2:y=h-(8*lh):fontsize=96:[email protected]:box=1:[email protected]:boxborderw=8
for system time it is more tricky (proper escaping is essential):

Code: Select all

drawtext='fontsize=96:[email protected]:box=1:[email protected]:boxborderw=8:fontfile=Envy_Code_R_Bold.ttf:text=%%{localtime\: %%d\\\/%%m\\\/%%y %%H\\\:%%M\\\:%%S }:x=(w-tw)/2:y=2*th+(h-th)/2'
Didn't modified positions!
