Will my custom logo overlay & logo icon on the web player be displayed on OTT/ConnectedTV as well?

The player customization of the web-player happens player-side. Roku, FireTV and all other OTT/ConnectedTV platforms are using different native players. None of them have the capibility to display the logo overlay or logo icon from your customized web-player. The only way how to add a watermark logo on OTT/ConnectedTV platforms is to have a watermark directly rendered onto your videos during the video editing process, or by using the "Lightcast Watermark Feature" (included in larger packages, see www.lightcast.com/packages ). 

Adding overlays on web-players and rendering a watermark onto the video-file itself are two entirely different technologies and solutions, serving different purposes. One difference is that ConnectedTV Apps will display your watermark if directly rendered onto your video files. 

Only web-players opened by desktop or mobile browsers are able to display web-player overlay, which you can add as part of your web-player customization, which replaces the Lightcast.com logo displayed for 3 seconds after loading a new video or stream until it fades out.
