    Im looking to embed youtube videos onto my site straight from my youtube channel. Although youtube doesnt look the most professional, can any one recoomend an embed method that looks the cleanest and most professional?


    Thanks!

    I actually think youtube looks quite clean and professional now when embedded in websites.

    There's not much you can change, besides the color (I think) and size, which don't really matter.

    I would say, don't include related videos at the end.. here's a little hack for you.

    Here's a normal YouTube embed html code:

    Code:
    <iframe title="YouTube video player" class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="640" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/UkvNmb9tMII" frameborder="0" allowFullScreen></iframe>
    put
    Code:
    &rel=0
    at the end of the youtube url in the code to disable related videos.

    So besides doing that, YouTube looks pretty good to me already.

    If you really want to look professional, go with Vimeo.

    ah okay, because i have seen some embeds where there are other videos on the bottom and others where it is just the video with no borers etc kind of like a flash video.

    Is there anyway i can put in a youtube video where the time bar disappears when you are not hovering over the video?
