Youtubes videos 2 clicks to play?

Should I try taking the circles and arrows off the youtube videos in mcgraphics.us/poets? It takes 2 clicks to play a video.
I’m concerned removing circles and arrows will break something as I’m not js savvy.

I wouldn’t mind, it’s due to that script you use. But you can also embed Youtube without all that stuff:

Thanks for the article.
I did a lot of work trying to find a responsive option that would work with css grid. Fast Embed was the only one I found. Even then I had to adjust the circles/arrows with media queries.

I looked at some of the plugins in the article. They turned out to be for WP.
