@Abhishek_Naniwadekar There isn't any feature inside stream to disable the play button for embedded videos. Is there a reason you're trying to hide the play button when embedded. It's kind of a standard feature of embedded video (e.g. Youtube).

We are trying to do the same. We would like to hide the on-demand video buttons in the embedded player. 


Is there a way to do this?

@Shannon2370 Per above, the answer is no.


Is there a reason you're trying to hide it? A play button is very standard for similar embedded video platforms (e.g. YouTube).


With the announced transition for Stream, you might consider looking into videos being stored in SharePoint rather than Stream.

Our design team would like a full bleed video where the buttons are hidden.

We were able to do this with YouTube but we are exploring switching to Microsoft's version.

Its a short video that will be on the homepage as a promotion.
