How to Remove YoutTube logo?

It is very simple and you have to take care of embedded code while posting on your website. Let me take the same embedded code of the video I’ve used above

<iframe width="480" height="360" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
You’ll have to add ?modestbranding=1 at the end of the YouTube’s embedding URL. Then it would look like this,

<iframe width="480" height="360" src="// " frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

What is modestbranding?

‘modestbranding’ is the attribute that lets you use a YouTube player that does not show a YouTube logo. Set the parameter value to ‘1’ to prevent the YouTube logo from displaying in the control bar. Note that a small ‘YouTube’ text label will still display in the upper-right corner of a paused video when the user's mouse pointer hovers over the player.

This parameter is supported by the following players: AS3, HTML5

YouTube supports many attributes like this to ease the embedding of its videos on to the websites for the users. We’ll be discussing them in the future articles.
