Text effect on any background color [duplicate]

I want to display a text over a video. However, the video may include any color from white to black. What is the best text effect (color/stroke/shadow/glow … etc) that can be applied on the text so that it will be very clear on any background color.


The classic internet answer, at least for static images (and I imagine it would work for video as well), is “White text with black outline can be read on any color.”
