How to Hide YouTube Title bar, Control, and Ending Ads

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

Hide Youtube Title bar, Control, and Ending Ads

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.

    This was a great help! One additional question. Is there any way of removing the YouTube logo? Also I’m wondering if there is a way of removing the arrow in the bottom of the site? It kinda lures people to click it and then the ads appear again.
    Thanks!

    When I add this code my whole image turns into a black box. What am I doing wrong?

      add ?showinfo=0 at end of video URL (and not &showinfo=0).

    I think YouTube found a ‘fix’ to this workaraound. It doesn’t seem to be possible to remove both the title and the youtube logo. One way or another, they want the watcher to be able to link back to youtube. 🙁
