Most people should know that YouTube is the number one video site online, and because of its fast server, people like to take the advantage of it by hosting videos there. However, the annoy things about embed default YouTube video are ending ads, title and control bar. With those in place, instead of staying on your site, visitors can easily being redirected to youTube site or your compeititors’ promotional ads; obviously, no one wants that . In this short tutorial, I am going to show you how to hide YouTube title bar, control and ending ads.
– Go to your YouTube video
– Click on the Share menu
– Then click on the Embed menu
– Make sure “Show suggested videos when the video finishes” is unchecked
Now, this embed code will state there will no be ending related ads after your video finishes playing.
In order to remove YouTube title bar and control, you will need to add few codes after the video link.
Original Embed Codes:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/qHn0SJHL6Sk?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
New Improved Codes:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/qHn0SJHL6Sk?rel=0&modestbranding=1&autohide=1&showinfo=0&controls=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
You can see I added “&modestbranding=1&autohide=1&showinfo=0&controls=0” after the link, that will take care of title control bar, and other few unnecessary stuffs.
