From Remote URL
VideoEditor SDK supports loading overlays from a remote URL, this can be a resource hosted by a photo hosting provider or your servers. Although the editor supports adding assets with remote URLs, we highly recommend that you manage the download of remote resources yourself, since this gives you more control over the whole process.

OverlayItem uses the same id as the
OverlayAsset. We also provide a name and a thumbnail
ImageSource for the overlay.
