Chromeless player disables the controls in the player UI and plays the video by autoplay. This tutorial helps in implementing the Chromeless layout on Ooyala Player.



Device Compatibility

Android, Flash

Operative System

Mac OSX  version 10.7.2, Windows 7 SP1


Firefox 6.0.1 and above

Troubleshooting tools




Add the Chromeless layout to your HTML embed to disable the player controls so that the user can watch the video without the controls being shown.

Please note that by removing the player's control bar users will not be able to play the video as the play button will not be visible, in this case, We can set the autoplay parameter to 1 which will make the video to start as soon as the player finishes loading the stream. Here is an example for chromeless usage,


<script src=""></script>

For hiding specific controls like share, info buttons please recommend the customer to use "hide" parameter. Adding this to the query string gives us the option to disable some functions in the player.

Here is an example for hiding share and info button,

<script src=",info&width=700&height=300"></script>
