In 264.BL (https://geeksontour.com/2013/0…..o-in-blog/), there is a note about a change in Jan 2015.  Either this has changed again or I am just not seeing it, but I can not find the option not to include the related video.  Has it been moved again?

“Note Jan 2015: YouTube moved the option to not include related videos as is shown near the end of this tutorial. To see that option now, click on the link to “Show More” right below the embed code.”  

Here is what I am now seeing??

EMBED OPTIONS
 
 
  Show player controls.
 
  Enable privacy-enhanced mode.

Yep! It’s gone again.

How I do it now is to manually add the appropriate code – the code to not show related videos at the end is rel=0

Here’s where it goes:

Chris, it seems that inserting this code via the html tab as you suggested, might be broken by Google again. I inserted it in several videos in my blog and instead of showing just any video suggestions from Google, it shows several video’s I have on my YouTube channel. 

Is there another code we can insert that would not show any suggested video’s at the end of our video?

Thank you for all your help.

You’re right. They broke it again. Unfortunately, it was intentional. They really want us to watch more videos when we finish watching one. I am happy with the fact that using the rel=0 code at least limits the suggestions to my channel’s videos. I know some people who don’t have many videos on their channel – they seem to get outside suggestions even with the rel=0 code  🙁

Aha! I’ve been trying to figure out how to shut off those additional videos.  I’m glad its not just me that can’t figure it out.  I understand about pasting an “embed” thingy into the html tab but how do I know “where” to paste it?

Sorry, I’m not following you. Are you referring to the entire embed code? You paste that into your post where you want the video to appear. Or are you referring to where in the embed code you add the rel=0? Or …??

Yes to both of your questions.   I copy the embed info from you tube and I click on the html tab on blogger but then I see that whole page of code and I don’t know where to paste.

 

The second question is:  do I have to add the re=o thingy.

OK, I getcha. Looking at your post in HTML view is difficult. Make a note of the words that are right before, and right after where you want the video to be and find them in your post. You can even use Ctrl-F if needed.

No you don’t need to do the rel=0 thing. Just realize that your viewer will be presented with a bunch of suggested videos to watch after yours.
