Cover page video remove traces of youtube

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 

I embedded a youtube video on my site but I am having two issues that I needed help solving:

1. I want to know if it's possible to avoid the Youtube video name and logo from showing up?

2. The video doesn't start playing right away, there is about a 5 second video lag, is there anyway of making it start from the moment the page opens?

Thanks!

This is a YouTube feature that isn't controlled by Squarespace and can't be disabled. The solution is to use a paid plan on another supported video service like Vimeo or Wistia.

See https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/206542397-Adding-videos-to-your-site

The video will always take some time to preload; the delay will depend on the visitor's download speed. This is what fallback images are useful for. They can be shown until the video is ready to play.
