Interactive Youtube Video and Youtube TOS


we want to use Interactive Video with Youtube as video source. I worked with Youtube Player Embed in the past and found that the Youtube TOS are quite restricting: "If you use the Embeddable Player on your website, you may not modify, build upon, or block any portion or functionality of the Embeddable Player, including but not limited to links back to the YouTube website." (4F on )

So I wonder if the use of overlaying content on youtube videos is allowed?
Or are the Youtube TOS not relevant at this point, because H5P does not use the Embeddable Player??

Looking forward to your opinions

Hi Bene,

We found that it is very hard to imagine YouTube coming after us for the way we're using it, in the H5P open source project. But authors should take care not to put anything on top of their logo.
