Getting the most out of your YouTube embedded Video’s

 

I learned something cool today.

I have always wanted to know how some people were able to get their video’s from YouTube to do special things like autoplay & hide the control bar & a few other things.

So I went investigating on how I can do this too.

Well I found out how & I’m going to spread the love by sharing it with you!

So this is how to do it:

First you need to get the embed code from your YouTube video.  It’ll look something like this:

<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/vMXlkTStO1k” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

 Now at the ens of the link (www.youtube.com/embed/vMXlkTStO1k) you need to add a question mark – ?

Then you need to add the parameter that you want to do. So:

  • If you want your video to automatically play type autoplay=1
  • If you want your video to not have the controls at the bottom of the video type controls=0
  • If you don’t want the title of the video showing type showinfo=0
  • If you don’t want the related video’s to come up at the end of the video type rel=0

Now if you want a combination of these add an & sign between each one.

So then for example, what my embed code is for the video that played at the start is: (I bolded my additions)

<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/vMXlkTStO1k?autoplay=1&controls=0&rel=0&showinfo=0” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

There are heaps more things you can do aswell.
