I am creating a site that has a paywall. Only registered users may view content, and as part of that content we are allowing upload and sharing of videos to other registered members. Currently I am leveraging YouTube to handle this, as they handle a whole bunch of things for us. Consequently for providing the free service, their embedded player has some light branding on the chrome.
My question is then, since users are paying for the site, is it unprofessional to use a freely available host like this? Currently we are not drawing attention to or from the player. Could it be spun on the upload page to be something like "we have partnered with media mogul YouTube to bring you fast and easy content delivery" which makes the branding make sense? Should we forego all that and set up our own video system to get a plain black player? Is there any kind of middle ground?
