Embedding videos without default YouTube branding and chrome

There are a few different ways to embed YouTube videos without the default Youtube branding on a video. These examples are taken from these articles over at ReelSEO

Example 1:

  • No Title Bar
  • YouTube branding shows in the player, on hover only, after video has started.
  • No related videos at end

Example 2:

  • Title Bar visible
  • YouTube branding shows in the player, on hover only, after video has started.
  • No related videos at end

Example 3:

  • Title Bar visible, with YouTube text in title bar, on hover only, before playing
  • No branding in the player, on hover, after video has started
  • No related videos at end

    This was very helpful, thanks so much. I wonder is there a similar method for vimeo?

    Simple and intuitive, thank you!
    but APIs don’t allow total no branding customization.
    if no info bar shown, youtube logo(watermark) is shown… if info bar is shown have a link at the youtube site…
    is it right? bye
