YouTube Thursdays - Getting Rid of Suggestions and Embed Video In AR

YouTube Thursdays - Getting Rid of Video Suggestions and Tips for Embedding your video in Active Rain. 





You don't want to send your video viewers in another direction, therefore, you'll want to make sure you get rid of suggestions at the end of your embedded YouTube videos. Unfortunately, it's a default in the embed code and you'll have to make sure you follow this step everytime you share a video.  It's easy, but it is one more thing to remember to do. 


Today, this is a two-part how-to video The second part is how to embed your video in your AR blog posts. I'll show you how to change the frame size to better fit the format and how to center it properly. For easier viewing, watch the video in full-screen mode. 



Much like Anita Clark 's Facebook Fridays, we encourage you to subscribe to each other's YouTube Channels - and take a minute to "like" or leave a comment. You can also add your own YouTube Channel in the comments below, and ask for subscribers. Be sure to subscribe back though - it's quid pro quo! 


Today, we feature Toby Barnett 's YouTube Channel Barnett Associates Team. Toby sells real estate in Snohomish County, in the northern section of Wasington State, specifically Marysville, WA.

Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

Hi Debb and Bernie,

I knew that, and I have since found out that if you take a movie clip from Fandango, they have it set so that you cannot keep them from giving a 1000 clip choices.  Luckily You Tube also had the same clip (not in HD), so I used that instead.  Happy Friday, wishing you a great weekend. A

Mo one wants a redirect to a competitor after putting the effort into their videography. You could not have made it any simpler Debb.

Thanks SOOO much just for the tip about preventing all those videos. What a nuisance they are. And the tip for embedding on AR is right on target.

Keep the education rolling!

Debb, I took a webinar last year and learned this trick. It's such an important one to keep viewers on our channel. Great advice! I hope you have a nice weekend.

More great tips, Debb & Bernie! I do use both but, for the longest time, I didn't know you could remove the suggested videos. I probably need to go back on all of my older videos and take care of that though! 

Thank you again, for your weekly YouTube posts, chock-full of great information!
