Trying to find a way to remove "recommended" videos that auto play after your youtube video?  My client passed away.  The people that are running non-profit organization now want me to remove the option of having youtube's recommended videos play after their video.  They do not have the youtube login credentials.  They do not have original video file.  Is there a way I can modify the code that is embedded in the website?

Adding the rel parameter to the video src link will remove the related videos at the end.

If you're using the iframe embed, your markup would look something like this,
<iframe width="853" height="480" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/DcxDpvXPAKU?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Open in new window


Alternatively, you could generate new embed markup by going to the video page on youtube, clicking on the share icon/link, embed tab (show more) and recreate using the parameters of your choosing.

You don't have to have a login to embed a video in your pages, at least not for most of them.  If the videos are using the 'new' Embed format like this:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/bDKz6DJQgL0?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Make sure the "?rel=0" is at the end of the URL.  That turns off the 'Related Videos'.
