YouTube has simplified its embedding and removal of related videos

No long ago I wrote a post showing how to avoid advertising for other law firms when you embed video from YouTube on your website, on Facebook, or in a blog post.

YouTube automatically provides related videos when you embed a video and those related videos often include your competition. This is obviously something you want to avoid. The directions I provided will still work for some older videos, but a lot of newer videos now use a different code and require a different methodology to remove related videos. Fortunately the new process is actually easier.

The first step is to go to the video you want to share. Scroll down and you will see an icon that reads “share” It looks like this:


Once you have clicked on Share you will see a link with the option to Embed. That looks like this.



Click on Embed to see your options.



Make sure the option “Show suggested videos when the video finishes” is not checked. As you can see, you can also easily adjust the size or choose other options as well. Once you are ready, copy the code and paste it where you want to embed the video.
