    You can do that by hiding Youtube contols.

    Try this:

    Code:
    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/kffacxfA7G4?controls=0" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Yes. It is. Pretty good to hide video source to. Easy to intergrate if you are using wordpress
