    Any way to embed a Youtube video without revealing the original video URL?
    With the normal embed, the logo links to the video. I've seen solutions that remove the logo but you can still right click and get the URL from the menu.

    There used to be a WP plugin that does it but it hasn't been updated in ages and doesn't load the videos anymore (FlowplayerPlaylist).

    I guess it's worth adding.. the only reason I'm hosting it on YT, is because I was having buffering issues hosting it on the site itself... didn't want to pay for video hosting. So maybe there's another videohost that lets me hide the original video URL from embeds?

    Thanks

    I've never seen it done personally. I've seen sites (with millions of visitors a day) that still embed them with the logo in the bottom right corner.

    I've seen it before. I've also done it before, with that plugin.

    I've seen some sites that doesn't even have the logo. You can only get the link if you view in fullscreen so that the title of the vid appears and then you can click.
