Hidden Embedded YouTube Controls

Hi Friends,

I discovered this cool trick that actually has solved my YouTube video embedding issues.


When I embed a YouTube video, the video controls are always present. Even worse though, YouTube adds the “watch on YouTube option” and allows my video watchers to leave my page/blog and go to YouTube. This is pretty frustrating if you are trying to keep your readers engaged on your site.


Example of embedded YouTube video with video controls.

Modify the embedded code that YouTube gives you to hide the embedded Youtube controls.

See some tips below…

Tip #1:

Add the following code to your YouTube embed code.


You will place it in your SRC section directly after your video’s full URL. See an example below…


 Tip #2:

You can set the video to automatically start once the visitor loads your page.

Set the option to zero “1” to automatically start video.


Set the option to zero “0” to automatically stop video.


Here are real embedded examples:

This is hidden controls with no “watch on YouTube”. Notice when you hover over the video that the you canNOT leave my web page to watch the video on YouTube.

This is with controls with “watch on YouTube”. Notice when you hover over the video how you are able to leave my blog page to watch the video on YouTube.com.
