    Default Youtube Videos - No Ads?

    A lot of the newer games are being released with a YouTube video as a promotional tool. However, embedding these videos on your site still has the YouTube ads come up over them which is distracting and may lead visitors away from your site without any ad revenue gain.

    Does anyone know if there's a way around the ads appearing? I suspect not.

    Do any of the games providers give out the actual video files so a site could host the videos themselves?

    Any other work-around?

    Could always use a youtube video downloader then upload it to your site?

    You won't be able to remove the ads as they are hosted on Youtubes end. You could email the slot company and ask for your own copy of the video.

    That would be stealing.

    im not really sure what you mean,can you give me a screenshot ?

    Original

    <iframe width="854" height="510" src="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7fl9e9Xoww" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
    And now in html5

    <object style="width:100%;height:100%;width: 820px; height: 461.25px; float: none; clear: both; margin: 2px auto;" data="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7fl9e9Xoww">
    </object>
    Ok,let me think about it..here without iframe

    <div style="width:100%;height:100%;width: 820px; height: 461.25px; float: none; clear: both; margin: 2px auto;">
    <embed src="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7fl9e9Xoww?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel =0&amp;autohide=1&amp;autoplay=1" wmode="transparent" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%" height="100%" allowfullscreen="true" title="Adobe Flash Player">
    </div>

    Thanks Progger but displaying the video I'm ok with. What I'd like to do is display the videos without any ads popping up over them.

    Perhaps I'll contact NetEnt, etc, and see what they say.

    My tip would be to make your own videos, costs a litle bit of work, but you would get something unique in return. Gives you the option of sending traffic to your site from Youtube as well.

    Ofcourse not an option If you were planning to use the videos on upcomming slots.

    I think it is totally stupid to post a promotional video with ads on.
    This is so bad from a marketing point of view that I would really message the company who uses this videos and tell them to have their youtube managed fired.

    If you are publishing a promotional video, dont use youtube. Not only will ads be displayed, but you may actually be promoting competitors with related videos.
