How to Hide YouTube Search Bar

I hate YouTube search bar on embeded videos. If you agree, then there’s workaround to hide it mentioned by a reader, Bobby.

Example this original YouTube codes:

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="450" height="377" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/WIvmE4_KMNw&amp;hl=en" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="450" height="377" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/WIvmE4_KMNw&amp;hl=en" wmode="transparent"></embed></object>

Find the URL string, in this case, the URL is this:

http://www.youtube.com/v/WIvmE4_KMNw&amp;hl=en

then append this code:

&showsearch=0

At the end of the URL string, so it’ll look like below:

http://www.youtube.com/v/WIvmE4_KMNw&amp;hl=en&showsearch=0

The final code will look like this:

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="450" height="377" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/WIvmE4_KMNw&amp;hl=en&showsearch=0" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="450" height="377" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/WIvmE4_KMNw&amp;hl=en&showsearch=0" wmode="transparent"></embed></object>

That’s it. Hope that works for your site too.
