Remove YouTube Logo When Embedding Videos

YouTube has always been a great alternative for those webmasters that does not have the resources to host their own videos on their own servers. There are many such video content producers that use YouTube as a video hosting platform. This helps them offset costs they would have otherwise incurred in terms of bandwidth usage and server resources. In return, YouTube places a small transparent watermark/logo in the lower right corner of the video screen, as well as one in the video player.

YouTube has now added a new option that allows people to embed YouTube videos on their websites without the YouTube logo. YouTube calls the new approach ‘modest branding’.

Here is a video with the YouTube logo.

When ‘modest branding’ is enabled, the embedded player carries no logo.

Note that a small “YouTube” text label will still show up in the upper-right corner of a paused video when you hover over the player.

To embed video without the logo, simply add the parameter modestbranding=1, as shown below.
