[learn_more caption=”Video transcript” state=”open”] How do you stop related videos from showing on YouTube videos after they’ve played? This is a question from Nigel Wilkinson from WNW Design. The simple answer to this is that on YouTube, you can’t. YouTube owns the site, it sets the rules, and it will show you after the video has played, any videos that it thinks are related to your video by keyword. It will also show down the right hand side all the time, any other videos that it thinks are related.

However, there is good news, because on your website, if you’re embedding your YouTube video, you can change this. When you use the “Share” tab on YouTube to get what’s called the embed code, by default, there’s a tick box underneath which says, “Show related videos after my video has played.” What you can do, is if you can untick this, it will change the code that you then use to embed the video on your website. And that means, when the video has finished playing, it won’t show any related, and possibly competitor videos.

So, thank you, Nigel, for that question.[/learn_more]
