Disable YouTube social sharing on landing pages

Is it possible to not share a YouTube video you embed on a landing page? We have videos only meant for a specific audience and can't promote it socially.

Any updates on this? We have videos only suitable for existing customers so sharing externally is a no-go. Need help!

Partial fix for this. Don't use the Upload Video tool under the Insert Elements section in the landing page editor, and instead embed the video on the page.

To do this, get the embed code from YouTube and paste into the HTML section in the editor of your landing page. This will remove the Share icons for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn underneath the video, but unfortunately, there's no way to remove the Share icon in the top right of the video as this is populated by YouTube. The only way around this is to host the video yourself and embed it on your Marketo page from there.

Sure it will!  Adding a standard YouTube embed to a Guided LP is even easier than on a Free-Form LP, because you can have a mktoString variable videoId to hold the video ID.  Just put the YT code in the template and inject the ${videoId} variable.

+1. For what Sanford suggested, I do it this way as well.

Also, if bootstrap is being used, you can use the responsive embed classes.

<div class="embed-responsive embed-responsive-16by9">

  <iframe class="embed-responsive-item" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/${videoId}?rel=0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

</div>

OR 

<div
class="embed-responsive embed-responsive-4by3">
   <iframe class="embed-responsive-item" src="..." allowfullscreen></iframe>
</div>
