Many businesses are skittish about having a YouTube branded player on their website for their corporate videos. The branded player shouts out two things to prospective customers.
1) We host our videos for free!
2) We host our videos right alongside skateboarding dogs and hilarious weddings!
The reality is YouTube is an incredibly stable and easy place to host business videos. YouTube even provides video analytics to help businesses understand important information about demographics and viewership.
Good news! Last week, YouTube announced a new “logoless” option that is more business video friendly. The new option strips away the YouTube logo from the bottom right corner of the video. Now, businesses can embed video on their website and have a cleaner look without telegraphing the video is hosted on YouTube.
To Remove the YouTube logo, “At the end of the video URL in your embed code, just add the code ?modestbranding=1 and the player will show without the YouTube logo in the control bar.” Note a small YouTube text label will still show above the video when a user hovers over the player.
