YouTube video settings in a Sawtooth Software survey

I can hide the control buttons at the bottom.

I can hide the title bar (top left) and share button (top right).

A YouTube logo appears at the bottom right. If I turn this off, the title bar and share logo reappear?

If I turn the title bar and share logo off, the YouTube logo reappears?

Is it possible to have the YouTube video looking totally plain: no branding, not controls, no share buttons? All hidden.

Hi Paul,

at times we face the same issues and use vimeo instead.

Thanks Hitesh. We were hoping to obtain a free solution.

We investigated vimeo also which attracted a fee to remove branding and have a clean skin video.

I have fiddled with the solution Sawtooth Software kindly mentioned on their website which mentions saving multiple formats of the video to your graphics folder, change an advanced setting and insert the relevant script into your question page. My tests thus far have been good except I had some issues with Mozilla. Hoping to sort that out soon.

I think the worst case is we go with something like vimeo and pay the monthly fee.
