YouTube Style Video Play Button Photoshop Layer PSD File For Video Placeholder Images


Another useful PSD file that every web designer should have in their arsenal is this YouTube style Video Play button layer that you can place over any image to make a video placeholder image. I’ve noticed that I had to create these from scratch a lot lately so I made one that I can reuse and so sharing it with my readers too.

  1. Hey thanks! Much appreciate your sharing. Think I should start doing the very same. I’ve needed a video play button layer a time or two myself, so have downloaded your PSD file to use from now on. WOW! And thank YOU for the idea of sharing Photoshop files. Nice touch!


  2. I was just looking for something like this yesterday, and then stumbled on it here on your site, looking for entirely unrelated information! Thanks so much for sharing this!

  3. Do you have any idea how I can code it so that one of these image screenshots is in the space and then when you click it, the YouTube video starts? that would be a really useful tutorial as I’m trying to do that on my website now and I’m using a LightBox instead as a temporary fix.


  4. Hello! Thank you for the video play button!

    Does anyone know where I can get some free backgrounds to use – sometimes for print but often just for monitor use. Thank you! ~ Barbara
