View Full Version : Making YouTube controls like Vimeo's?

09-02-2010, 09:01 PM
Hi. I registered on this site (and many others, in search of an answer!) just to ask this question!:p. I have a blog that I'd like to apply this to:
Is it possible to embed a YouTube video in such a way that the player controls act similar to how Vimeo's player controls act? That is,
- The player controls fade away after you've hit play
- The player controls fade in (reappear when you scroll your mouse on the video
- The player controls then continue to fade in (appear) and fade out ('disappear') depending on when
you scroll on or off of the video with your cursor.
I'm asking because I love the way Vimeo's player controls are, but prefer using YouTube. Thanks for any replies! And I apologize if I've put this in the wrong section. I wasn't sure where to put it.

It is illegal to do so:
read (http://www.youtube.com/t/terms) see 4.F.
it says:

If you use the Embeddable Player on your website, you may not modify, build upon, or block any portion or functionality of the Embeddable Player, including but not limited to links back to the YouTube website.

Short: Use the embed "AS IS"

And NOBODY on this Forum or alike forums wants to contribute to illegal actions.
