How to Embed YouTube Videos without YouTube Logo?

Embed Video without YouTube LogoDo you know that you can embed YouTube Videos without the YouTube Logo? This process is easy but it does not serve any great purpose as most people would not even notice, but anyways I will be showing you How to Embed YouTube Videos without YouTube Logo.

Here I have Embedded the same video twice, one with the YouTube Logo attached to it, the other without.






To Remove the YouTube Logo from the Video


YouTube has two types of code that you can embed into your Blog or Website, In this Technology Blog, I use the Iframe Version so I will show that first -

1)Iframe code -
<iframe width="500" height="300"
  src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/abc?modestbranding=1"
  frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>
</iframe>
2)Object Code Version -
<object width="500" height="314"> <param name="movie"
 value="http://www.youtube.com/v/abc?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="http://www.youtube.com/v/abc?version=3&rel=0&modestbranding=1"
   allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true">
  </embed>
</object>
If you notice carefully, I have added a piece of code to each of the above shown codes to remove the YouTube Logo from the Videos.Did you find it? Here it is -
modestbranding=1

All you need to do is add that piece of code shown above to the end of the url of the Video in the video codes.

The reason for the YouTube Logo being installed in the player is to help people use the YouTube features like, Liking a Video, Rating the Video, Sharing Etc which can only be done on YouTube and not from the Embedded player.Just a click on the YouTube Logo takes you to the Video Page where you can do all that.
But most people never click on the YouTube Logo to go the Video Page, so it is not of a great necessity.
