YouTube Thursday - Update! Getting Rid of Suggested Videos

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

YouTube Thursdays - Updated code to help with those pesky video suggestions. 



Many of you are frustrated with YouTube's continual updates. One that bugs most of us is the inability to get rid of video suggestions ( from others channels) at the end of our videos. 

Recently, I (Debb) found an update to the code ?rel=0 that stopped working. Here is a link to the original video tutorial about where you add the code in your embeds. It works the same, but now you add additional code.

You'll still see video suggestions, but they will be from your own channel - providing you have more than one video. You can scroll ahead to the end of this short video to see an example. 


Here's how to do it. This the embed code for this video in YouTube. Note, the URL of your video is a series of letters and numbers. It's circled to make it easy to find. 


Above you'll see the new embed code to use. You'll add after the video URL. 


Here's how it looks. Also, note the change the video size to better fill our blog posts.  





It works, at least for now.

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!

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. 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”.

Playlists to save your cyber open house buyers wasting time to find their category of listing make sense too. They continue to play one by one for the roaming from property after property Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD !

Debb, you outsmarted them again! This is a great tip, thank you! Those suggested videos that aren't our own are a pet peeve of mine. I don't understand why they took away the checkbox months ago. That made it so easy to avoid. Thank you again!

Awesome tip!  It seems the suggested videos aren't relevant and it would be better if it suggested other videos from our channel.

Thank you for the video! I knew to get rid of the suggested videos, but not the sizing you suggest.  Now I know to do both :)  Great video!

It's taken me forever to get to checking this out but, I finally did and sampled it on a video I posted earlier this week. I'm so excited to have my suggested videos be featured and not other local agents' videos who post about similar neighborhoods. It WORKED!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thank you, Debb & Bernie!
