Disabling "go to youtube" function for embedded videos

 3:53 am on Apr 5, 2009 (gmt 0)

Hi everybody,

I created a youtube video and want to add it on my landing page. But I don't want the visitors to click on it and go to youtube, because there's a good chance they will be distracted with other videos.

Usually, one click stops or restarts the video - and double clicking takes you to youtube. I want to avoid the second scenario.

Is there a variable I can add in my source code to disable this?

Or, is there any other way I can do this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

mmitdd, I'm pretty sure this is not possible. What incentive would Youtube have to provide this functionality?

Also, from section 4 of their Terms of Service [youtube.com] is this:

You agree not to alter or modify any part of the Website, including but not limited to YouTube's Embeddable Player or any of its related technologies.
