I am using the html element to embed youtube videos.
Is there anyway I can hide the overlay title bar, and the watch
on youtube button,watch later.
by using css or javascript or another solution.

I am using the materialize template.

Hi well there used to be a way, but YouTube stopped it, you can still stop the suggested videos from appearing with a little bit of code in the YouTube link, until they spot it (which may never happen) at which time they will remove it.
Unfortunately I haven't yet found a way to not show the title and watch later things from showing

If you are showing videos from your own channel you can apply. ?rel=0 to the end of the embed URL which will only show your own videos to show next at the end of the videos.... Not sure this is exactly how you wanted it but stops showing other obscure videos. There is also a hack based off embed responsively https://embedresponsively.com/ to hide title bar but needs a ton of media queries to work properly as responsive which is a real pain in the a**.
