I have embedded YouTube videos on my portfolio site.
When viewing the videos on mobile, there is a YouTube logo in the right corner, that I find very disturbing.
However, on desktop, this logo does not appear, you only see the play button centered on top of the video, and I would really like to achieve the same clean look on mobile!
To be clear, I'm talking about the watermark like logo that is displayed BEFORE hitting Play, not the one that's embedded in the controlers. See attached image.
Maybe you are able to put a layer on top to hide the logo? This depends of course on your video but it looks like being "cropable".
I did not find an easy solution to hide the logo. You can hide the "player elements" but this you may have found as well, I guess.
You can't meddle with YT's automatisms and that is that. Only Pro accounts allow to change some of these options, but off hand I'm not sure if that includes removing their player branding.
