I don't think this is possible. I'm happy to be proven wrong though...

Please read the forum rules.

I think marcuslim is right. You can set a lot of variations on controls/full screen, etc. but I don't think you can disable the link back to YouTube.

I would recommend enabling full screen. I see a lot of YouTube videos embedded on websites that do not allow "full screen" so I have to click through to YouTube to watch the video full screen.

Better visitors can maximize if from your site, then they are still at your site when they close the video.

I don't think you can do that if you embed the video directly from youtube. But you can download the flv file and host it from your server with your own flash player. Search for "JW Player".

Provided that it's your video then it's okay, otherwise you are headed for a world of trouble. You can use syndicated content in the form it has been syndicated, but not re-upload or modify it. That would be theft.

I thought it best to clarify that one, just in case anybody got the wrong idea.

I'd go with onSubie's advice on let your users see the video full screen, so they rather stay on your page at the end.

No, you stay right here on Warrior Forum. Of course, the OP is vague with his question so it's hard to know what he's asking.

I think making the youtube video not clickable is against youtube terms. Lets not kill google services, they provide the best to us webmasters, these kind of hacks may prevent video embeds in future..

How is it that you stay on WF? The video will play on WF if you click the play button but when the video is clicked it takes you to youtube.
Try the jw player, clicking the video will not take you to youtube but there is a link. No way around that.

Hi BJ-Min,

Is it possible ?
It is possible to embedd youtube video whille removing the link of YouTube from it by using a custom Video player which should only get the video from YouTube and should play it according to your need. Google "Custom video players for websites", hopefully you will find a solution.

Is it against their TOS?
Yes. It should be clear that It is against the TOS of YouTube.

My thoughts
YouTube is a great service providing great stuff. Whenever we embed a video. The only thing it gets in return is a link on the video which is whenever clicked takes to the YouTube. Would recommend not to remove it.

thanks

I have to agree with highstake, keep the link. When they close YouTube, they should still be on your site.

Seeking my teeth into all this great information.

You can't completely remove link back to youtube source video, though you can always use Jw Player or any other OVP (online video player), that will allow to import youtube videos and embedd it in your customized video player.

If you're using Wordpress:

Download the "Flash Video Player" Wordpress plugin: WordPress › Flash Video Player WordPress Plugins

Active the plugin.

Enter the following short code wherever you would like the YouTube video to be displayed:

Code:
[flashvideo file=http://youtube.com/watch?v=pShf2VuAu_Q /]
(Obviously, replace the YouTube video link with your own )

There are many options for the player itself including the ability to hide the controls, autoplay, change the size of videos, etc...

Here's a demo of the plugin in action using all the default settings: http://marketinginunderwear.com/youtube-demo/

The plugin works with ANY Wordpress theme.

One way to still comply with their TOS is to have a link underneath the video leading back to the original.

The closest you can get can be seen at the link in my sig. The second video on this page (scroll down, under large red arrows) was created from a simple YouTube embed code. There are a lot of customizable things you can do to YouTube embed codes. Check it out and feel free to ask me any questions. I'll also gladly give you the code to do this if you're interested, but it'll be easier if you see what I'm talking about if you check it out first.

Try clicking the YouTube logo and see if that takes you to the site.

I don't *think* you can make the videos not be clickable back to Youtube (at least not within their TOS).

However, you can significantly customize the embed code making the video fairly "clean" by changing the embed code options, specifically:

- disable show suggested videos when the video finishes
- disable video controls
- hide annotations
- enable modest branding

Here's a tool that will do this for you automatically:

I have just embedded several Youtube videos in Wordpress and I have checked each one. The YT logo is visible once you hover over the video but it is not possible to click through to Youtube. Are you sure it doesn't violate YT's TOS?

Can anyone shed some light on this please? What would be the consequences if it does?

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Apologies, you can in fact click through to YT if you hover over the YT watermark in the corner and wait for their link to appear.

Click the 'Youtube Embed Tool' link in dwooding's post.

Then in the box below 'Youtube embed code'. Insert your embed code and click 'SUBMIT' beneath the box.

Scroll down the page a little. You will be presented with options. Check the following boxes:

-Play in HD (If it's HD)
-Disable video controls
-Hide annotations
-Modest Branding

Select which ever size you like. I choose 640 x 360.

Then click 'SUBMIT'

Then scroll up the page a little. Select the new edited embed code, insert it where ever you need it.


Hope that helps.

I thought about the same thing. I have an empower network video on the front of one of my lead pages with David Wood speaking. The video does not really tell you what company he is speaking about and neither does the lead page. But you are able to click through to YouTube to see what company it is. I was also trying to figure out a way to thwart that, but I just left it alone.

I'm using Chrome... click the You Tube logo at the
bottom or the title link on top of the video. Takes you
straight to YT.

While it is possible to add hyperlinks on YouTube videos via the built-in annotation features, the only problem is that you cannot link to external websites from YouTube videos – that links should either point to a video hosted on YouTube or to a video search page that’s again on YouTube.
This may be a problem especially for content publishers as cannot provide a "click here to read more" kind of link in the video where visitors may click to read the related story.
The problem however gets solved with LinkedTube, an online tool that lets you add hover buttons and links on YouTube videos while you embed them in web pages. Hover your mouse over the following YouTube to see LinkedTube in action.


LinkedTube is actually a Flash widget that adds links and other sharing options to the standard YouTube video player. You could make it point to your own website or even sites like eBay in case you have uploaded a promo video to YouTube.
