How to embed YouTube Video without YouTube Logo or Link

YouTube allows to share videos on websites, blogs and anywhere you want, all you need is to copy and paste the link or embed via provided code. There may be times when you don’t want YouTube logo to appear on the embedded video, but you don’t know how to do it.

Embedded code for the video remained the same, we just added ?modestbranding=1 in the embedded code with source code. So the source code in the embedded code changed from “https://www.youtube.com/embed/DK_0jXPuIr0” to “https://www.youtube.com/embed/DK_0jXPuIr0?modestbranding=1“.

It was easy, isn’t it? Most of the times, visitors leave your blog/website by clicking on YouTube logo that takes them to the same video on YouTube. You can control this by removing YouTube logo from embedded video, but they can still copy the video URL by secondary click on the video (only a few visitors do that).

Note : If you are using ?showinfo=0, to remove the title from the top of the embedded video, ?modestbranding=1 will not work, and the logo will appear.
