remove youtube logoJust a while ago, when I was going through Digital Inspiration, I got my eyes on this wonderful piece of information or a trick as I usually call such articles. This trick shows you how to embed YouTube videos without the YouTube logo.

When you embed a YouTube video, this is how it looks:
and the iframe code used is

<iframe width="560" height="349" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/aZ3lm-wCaMY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

As you can see, the video has the YouTube logo at the bottom right corner.

How to remove YouTube Logo from Videos

A small manipulation to the code and this is how the video looks
The manipulation in the code is adding the parameter modestbranding=1 at the end of the video URL.
Hence the manipulated iframe code is
<iframe width="560" height="349" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/aZ3lm-wCaMY?modestbranding=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
This parameter is also available to the object version. The code for the object version would be
<object width="500" height="314"> <param name="movie"
value="http://www.youtube.com/embed/aZ3lm-wCaMY?version=3&rel=0&modestbranding=1">
</param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param>
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
<embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="500" height="300"
src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/aZ3lm-wCaMY?version=3&rel=0&modestbranding=1"
allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true">
</embed>
</object>

  • @Lalit Indoria i didn’t get the main point that how to remove YouTube Logo will u tell me simple and short plz

    • You can see the image above. I have encircled the YouTube logo which has to be removed!

  • Nice hack for video bloggers, who don’t want to show youtube logo and wanna display video like they uploaded them …

  • It’s a good hack…however, I wouldn’t want to use it as it would take credit away from the uploader/creator of the video. Thanks though. The information is useful should the situation demand it.

  • In the second video the logo is removed but take a look at the top-right of the video column(hover mouse),text YouTube displays.Now you have to work more to hide that and more over everyone is familiar with YouTube video column style,so there is no need of this coding and iframe configuration stuff.What you think ?

    • Th top right text can not be hidden! Well noticed Jagan 🙂 Anyway the text is displayed only when you hover your mouse to the top right and when the video is yet to be played. It’s just a small trick and its usage would vary with different people!
