Remove Youtube logo and youtube video title upon start and mouse over from header video

I have added a video as the home page slide. the video looks good but when it starts it has the youtube logo at bottom and the youtube title at the top left briefly upon start and when you mouse over. I would like to know how to remove.

I tried adding URL variables but they do not work. this is true for loop and auto start as well. the URL variables seem to be stripped by the player.

I tried modestbranding=1 in the URL

So my URL would look like this

What player does the Syndey ii pro use? is it html5 or AS3 player?

Test URL is

Hello there,

Try adding this CSS code to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS from dashboard.

    #wp-custom-header.wp-custom-header button#wp-custom-header-video-button {
      z-index: 7;

    #wp-custom-header.wp-custom-header:after {
      content: '';
      display: block;
      width: 100%;
      height: 100%;
      background-color: rgba(255,255,255,0);
      z-index: 5;
      position: absolute;
      top: 0;
      left: 0;

This worked great for removing the logo and title upon mouse over. But the buttons still show at the beginning when page loads. Can we remove the youtube logo and video title at load time?

Can you help with the video NOT looping?
What player does the theme use? is there support docs for it?

Any Ideas on this guys?

I don’t want to disappoint you, but, I am sorry currently there is no option to hide them. See

It is YouTube video’s limitation and there is nothing to do with the theme’s code.
