The embedded videos from YouTube will show the YouTube logo in their control bars. For some reasons many people want to remove this logo from their videos. The embedded videos with and without the YouTube logo look like below.

Embedded YouTube videos

If you want to remove the YouTube logo from a video, you can do it easily. YouTube provides us a simple option to do it. Just add the option modestbranding=1 to the end of the video url and the YouTube logo will disappear in the flash player. This option works for both new iframe and old object version embed codes.

For the new iframe version:

<iframe width="560" height="349" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/JldGr9rHtco?rel=0&modestbranding=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

For the old object version:

<object width="560" height="349"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/JldGr9rHtco?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0&modestbranding=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/JldGr9rHtco?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0&modestbranding=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560" height="349" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

After removing the YouTube logo from a video, you will see a small “YouTube” text label in its upper-right corner. The “YouTube” text label appears when you hover over the player of a paused video.
