That'd be the VideoLAN Server, I guess. It used to be kind of the
counterpart of VLC, the client. Maybe it still is, but its use seems to
be discouraged:

Or, you can use the drawtext filter, Jens. You weren't clear on which
kind of branding. This filter simply overlays the video with text.

Also, I am with Moritz on the VLC/VLS specific questions. You'll get
better answers on their respective mailing lists.
