The present review covers the video watermarking literature published from 1997 to the year 2015. Through extensive work, some selection is necessary. Therefore, only articles published by a process of peer review in archival journal are reviewed. Papers are grouped according to the implementation techniques and further divided into sub techniques. Many papers deal with fundamental of digital video watermarking, including experimental, numerical and analytical works. Others are related to application or natural system. In addition to reviewing journal articles, this review also takes papers of good conferences and meeting on video watermarking. The main aim of authors is to provide every details regarding digital video watermarking under an umbrella. In other words all aspects of video watermarking are placed together in order to helpful to those readers looking the complete literature related to video watermarking scheme.
