Interactive video - youtube showinfo




It looks like Google has deprecated the "showinfo" parameter from youtube embedded videos?

This means that you can't anymore hide the video title, and other stuff pointing to youtube from the video. Before my videos from youtube were clean, now full of all kind of garbage from Youtube. At leas i had to change the videos to local.

This is really bad for the interactive video Youtube support, or does anyone have a solution for this?

Hi Anttik!

You are correct. YouTube has changed their API for the showinfo and rel parameters recently. Unfortunately, there's nothing we could do without severely conflicting with YouTube's terms of services. It's probably the price you have to pay for using a service that's free otherwise (next to paying with data).
