How to edit your YouTube embedded video to not have suggested videos at the end

I got this quote in an email from a client this morning.  I am not his web edit person, I am making their company some recruitment videos.

“At one time we talked about having an arsenal of 3 or 4 of these little ditties to rotate throughout the year, but I want to put that on hold until a vehicle can be found to have it run on our website without “Youtube” taking people away from my website…” Business Owner

WOW- I can’t loose a great customer like that and it is a simple edit that the web person doesn’t know yet.  Now you can know too.

 

First – Thank you to YouTube for the great tool they provide for little to no money.

Second – keep in mind that this works today, at any time YouTube could change how they do things and this little fix might be overridden.

 

When you embed video to your website the embed text you get to paste in the website will look like this:

<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/nORQwt7fZO4″ frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

To not have the suggested videos at the end of the video you need to add   ?rel=0 to the end of the https link.  See example below.

<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/nORQwt7fZO4?rel=0” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

That’s it!  Super easy and worth taking the time to add.  Now you can remove the suggested videos from the end of your embedded YouTube videos.
