Sometimes... just sometimes, too much information can be distracting on a web video presentation. Even the "skin" of the web video player can get in the way, and Youtube has provided a method to help you achieve your goals - if you are looking for that "minimalist" look.
Like many other Youtube examples the work must be donw with code inside the iFrame, but this one is very easy.
Here are two examples:
Single Video Youtube Brand Removal:<iframe width="1100" height="619" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/vPSqClO7kBU?modestbranding=1&rel=0&autoplay=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Playlist from Youtube Brand Removal:<iframe width="1100" height="619" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/videoseries?list=PL-fo4GkdZ_HjOBtE4MmNYFm0-W442AVWv&modestbranding=1&rel=0&autoplay=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Both examples simply add the "modestbranding" syntax, and in both cases, the use of additional syntax to control Autoplay and No Relevant Suggestions is still valid, and works great.
Youtube Single Videos:
add "?modestbranding=1" (question mark goes after Youtube video information)
add "&modestbranding=1" (Ampersand (&) goes after Youtube video information)
