Extended functionality of the embed link

For the least amount of branding extend the videolink by adding ?modestbranding=1&autoplay=1
This will remove the YouTube button in the player and activate autoplay.

If you want subtitles to be automatically displayed for an embedded video, add &cc_load_policy=1 to the video’s embed code.

You can also choose the subtitle language of the embedded video.
To do this, simply add &cc_lang_pref=fr&cc_load_policy=1 to the embed code of the video.
cc_lang_pref defines the language of the subtitles displayed in the video.
cc_load_policy=1 enables subtitles being activated by default.
