Support » Plugin: WP YouTube Lyte » FEATURE REQUEST: Remove progress bar

  • Resolved newslines


    Hi, thank you for this plug in, it’s really helped my page load times tremendously.

    The wordpress embedded youtube does not have the bottom section that includes the playbutton and progress bar. This format looks much cleaner on a page with many YouTube videos. Example

    I hope you can create an option to remove the play button/progress bar from the bottom of the image.

    Based on my own experience, the progress bar is sometimes shown and sometimes it is not. On the example page you provided, the progress bar is there in my case, cfr. screenshot here.

    I’ve been giving this some more thought; I’ll probably not add this as an option (I would actually love to reduce the number of options), but you can easily remove the progress bar by adding something like this to your theme’s CSS:

    .ctrl {
        display: none !important;

    hope this helps!

    best wishes for 2013,

    Thank you – it worked great. Check my site for examples

    One other question. Is it possible to apply the plugin to all Youtube videos on my site without having to use “httpv” on each one?

    WP YouTube Lyte doesn’t offer that feature by default, but I would advice you to try one of the plugins that replaces text; if you configure such a plugin (if it is started with high priority, you might have to tinker with the add_action priority parameter, will have to have higher priority then wp youtube lyte) to replace with httpv://, it should work. Hope this helps.
