Unfortunately, Vimeo decided to be rather disingenuous about their offerings…knowing very well that users are upgrading for the reason to remove the “playbar” feature. Well, you can remove it – then they force an ugly pause button to remain over the middle of the video. Now, I am mildly irritated but oh well thats the Tech industry for you.
I found a solution!! When using Elementor and you want to have a video display without all the playbar and profile crap – add the video as the background of the row and insert spacers – 500px or more to achieve this. Works great! So, instead of using a video embed widget, just embed it as the background of the row!
