After upgrading an On-Premise instance from Jive 7 to Jive 9, and with the previous configuration of a default watermark in the videos, the following issue might occur:
In Admin Console > Video > Settings, the watermark option does not exist anymore and the watermark could persist in the videos without being able to remove it.
This article provides the solution to adjust the system property value to remove the persistent watermark post-upgrade.

The system property change requires a restart, therefore, it would be recommended doing this during the out-of-office hours.
Root Cause Analysis
The reason for not having the option for the watermark in video settings within the admin console is because, in recent Jive versions, we have transitioned from using an Adobe Flash video player to an HTML5 Video player (JWPlayer).

To remove the persistent watermark, it is required to set the mentioned property within the Admin Console > System > Management > System Properties page to the following value:
__jive.watermark.id = 0
