I found which I had syntax problem these are working fine
_texte from the command line_
ffmpeg -y -i  in_file.flv -i logo.png -filter_complex 
drawtext=fontfile=/Windows/Fonts/arialbd.ttf:text=my texte 

_texte taken from  my_texte.txt file _
ffmpeg -y -i  in_file.flv -i logo.png -filter_complex 

these exemples belongs to the archive thanks to all

I still have a pending question
how could I made with ffmpeg a png file with transparency and/or alpha 
like pink at 0.5 (example)
I have tried
ffmpeg -i uad.jpg  -vcodec png -pix_fmt rgb32 -y uad.png

many thanks to all
