  1. crop a Portion of video (e.g upper right), preferably by dragging a rectangle to the correct size & position

    ffmpeg can probably do it - but I am not sure, because I can't understand your question. superuser.com is full with ffmpeg gurus. – peterh - Reinstate Monica Jan 8 at 3:56

    The OP wants to overlay a video with another video (picture in picture). 1) crop video #1 to define a portion of it (e.g upper right) 2) have that video display in front of video #2 (hiding part of #2) 3) save the result as a single new video – Mawg says reinstate Monica Jan 8 at 13:47
  • DILTENDO.com I edited your question to make it clearer to others (it seemed clear enough to me). I hope that you don't mind. Please state an operating system (Windows/Linux/Mac/Android/IoS/other and say whether it must be free (add the gratis tag, or state your budget. Best read How to Ask) @RockPaperLizard can it be un-held now? – Mawg says reinstate Monica Jan 8 at 13:52
  • @MawgsaysreinstateMonica Yes. :) Thank you for your edits and for the recommendations you made to the OP. – RockPaperLz- Mask it or Casket Jan 9 at 5:00
  • For a really quick and dirty version... get a screen capture software and just capture your own screen playing the two videos. – Nelson Jan 9 at 7:42
