How to remove Logo and other attributes from YouTube Video?


Sometimes we want to hide the video title, YouTube logo, and other YouTube attributes of the video from the user for preventing direct access to the video on the YouTube Site. We can hide some default attributes like related videos, copy links,s, etc. by passing the attribute values in the YouTube link. But we can hide the other attributes like the YouTube logo, title, share option by using 3rd party plugins.
