HOW TO: Get Logoless YouTube Player

YouTube Player LogoNow YouTube provides us the option to remove their cute branding logo in the control bar of the YouTube video player. You just need to make a minor change.

At the end of the video URL in your embed code, just add the code ?modestbranding=1 and the player will show without the YouTube logo in the control bar.

Below I have embedded Cars 2 Trailer from Disney Pixar – Without and With Logo.

Though they have the option to remove the logo, still there will be a small “YouTube” text label which will show up in the upper-right corner of a paused video when you hover over the player.
