Custom Controls For YouTube's Player by Fancify

One of the most significant limitations of the official YouTube Player is that it is nearly impossible to change or tweak how the player looks without actually diving into the source code itself. So what can you do if you are looking to change the layout or style of the YouTube player to better fit your site's style or design?

The easiest way to take back control of the YouTube video player controls is to use the Fancify app. The Fancify app will give you all the options you need to customize and adjust the YouTube player controls, so you can use it exactly the way you want on your site.

Editing the Interface Options

Most of the customization available through Fancify relies on changing the interface elements of the video player itself. While this may sound like a detailed and challenging task, it couldn't be more effortless when you use the Fancify app. There is no need to memorize any tricky techniques or learn to code. The app will take care of all the customization elements for you.

The available elements for customization are the pause button, the volume button, the volume bar, the fullscreen option button, and the two standard play buttons.

If you are like many, the YouTube video player's standard layout can seem clunky and out of place on most sites. Fancify allows you to custom these controls and place them where they will be most visually appealing and useful to your visitors.

Once you are satisfied with your custom player's look and feel, you can generate the embed code to be placed on your website. You can also choose to change any video-specific control options such as loop, autoplay, start-time, and many more. The customization options with the Fancify app are endless.
