~ not sure where to put this ~

What I need:

To have a WP plugin or other method to make ALL videos imported into a website play in a decently styled player with NO YouTube, Vimeo or DailyMotion logo or link. And of course full screen capable.

Why this has proven difficult for me:

I need this to happen with the auto-fetch plugins I use and cannot find one that after importing, will play the video in anything except the standard YouTube player.

I've been trying to figure this out for weeks now and have become very frustrated. That's why I am asking for help. Normally I like to figure out things on my own but in this case I am running out of time and figuring out the required coding at this time is beyond me.

Even with the themes that have nice players that play videos with no logos or links and will play full screen, the only videos that play that way are the ones with demo data that came with the theme.

Once I auto import my own videos with my auto-fetch plugins, THOSE videos play in the standard YT player (or their respective source players) while yet the ones that came with the themes demo data STILL play in a nice player with no logos or links and in full screen mode.

I've searched the internet and have learned about the "modestbranding and fullscreen" commands and could figure out (in it's simplest form) how to mod the embed code to remove branding and enable full screen but that would still leave the ugly player (my opinion) and would also mean I would have to redo EVERY embed code that my auto-fetchers bring in manually. Sort of defeats the purpose of the auto video importers.

If worst came to worse, If I could come up with embed code that would include a very nice player, no branding and full screen, I could do that one at a time just replacing the video ID but I would much prefer an automatic method. I really, really like the players by videojs but could never figure out that coding on my own. That's part of my disability.

Maybe a small WP plugin or PHP script that listens for new videos being added, would copy the video ID and replace the videos embed code with a preset one including the video ID of the video being imported.

This has been a long post. If you made it this far, thank you very much. I really need to get this figured out because I am disabled now and can no longer work.

With the holidays fast approaching, I really do need to figure out this "how to make money with video websites" method. I think I'm on the right track, just going very slowly.

Do you have any ideas? Can you help me out here?

Thank you all for reading this long post and have a great day,

John

Gotta address the elephant in the room. Why the need to remove logo/copyright of videos imported? If you are not the source of the video then it is logical that you acknowledge where the videos come from. I know the "disabled and work" thing, been there, doing that (still working, of course), but if content desired ain't mine and I use it the last thing I would do is not give credit where credit is due. Most times I ASK first before doing anything like that.

Just asking!

I had the impression that these videos were owned by pede since I read this part:
Once I auto import my own videos with my auto-fetch plugins...
but maybe I misread it. My guess is that if the plugin came with demo videos that work fine in their theme player, that you would need to format your own videos into the same format so they would work. Did the theme not offer any instruction?

Keep in mind that some older common video formats are losing ground as newer browsers are dropping support for them.

@not2easy: Yes, all that, but mention of YT, Vimeo, styled player etc does raise an eyebrow.

Me... any vids I put up on YT (example) that i embed on my own site are happy to have the logo as that is where the video is HOSTED. Same with Vimeo (though I have no content there).

The stripping of logo just begs the question of why ... and I am asking because of comments of "auto fetch" and other desires are very curious!
