The YouTube coin:
- On one side you have a ginormous reservoir of digital media that many educators have gone to support and enhance their lessons.
- On the other you have the those suggested/related videos that display at the end of the video, and some use the term “related” very loosely.
But, thanks to a recent posting on Google+ from Tony Vincent over at Learning in Hand, I learned that there is a way to disable the related videos from showing at the end when you go to embed a YouTube video:
- Scroll down beneath the YouTube video and click on the ‘Share’ button.
- Click on the ‘Embed’ option to reveal the embed code for the video.
- Click on the SHOW MORE link located just below the embed code box.
- The window will expand to show a preview of the video an additional customization options such as video size and player controls. The first checkbox is the one you want which is enabled by default: “Show suggested videos when the video finishes.” Uncheck this box to disable the suggested/related videos panels from being displayed at the end of the YouTube video.
- Copy-&-paste the revised embed code and add it to your project.
