How To Embed Customized Youtube Video Players

Education & Training with Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty

Here are (3) three really great custom Youtube video player embeds you can use for adding variety to your site or self-hosted blog. All three are using videos hosted on Youtube, but the players are unique based on the desired end result. For example...

How To Embed a Customized Youtube Video Player without Links

I've been trying to figure out how to embed a Youtube video and player without having relevant videos popup at the end. I was also wondering if there were a way to remove the Youtube logo from showing up in the bottom lower right corner of the player which allows viewers to go back and watch the video on the Youtube site.

Up until now I was unsuccessful, but as they say... if at first you don't succeed, try try again.

I finally figured it out and as you can see by the video above, there is NO link back to Youtube and there are NO related videos that pop up when this one is finished.

If you're looking for a way to do this with the videos and player on your site or blog, I found a magical resource that reveals how I was able to accomplish this and how you can do the same using a simple HTML modification and an iFrame embed code from Youtube. Read More...

Hi Brad, finally!

I received an email last year from Zillow promoting your service to brokers. After I watched the embedded video YouTube offerred a selection of videos to watch next.

The featured video was entitled "Zillow scam." At the time I thought that wasn't the message they wanted to deliver.

Have a Happy New Year.
