YouTube video issue

593 Views
Last Modified: 2015-08-20
I posted on my website a video that I created and stored on YouTube. I added it simply copying the link inside the website template that go daddy offer. It is working fine and everyone who click on it can watch it with no problem. The problem is at the end of my 30 seconds video….When immediately in sequence another video is pushed out to the viewer. That video has nothing to do with my business and makes me look cheap and unprofessional.
Does anyone know how I can stop that? Is it possible to stop that? or is a way in which YouTube make us pay for storing our video sending our other random video after my video ?
What ai am trying to accomplish is that after my clients have watched my video it should simple stop and reload to the beginning for a second view.

Thank you.

You are using YouTube to further your business for free.  YouTube also is in the business of making money.

If you want more control over how your videos are displayed using YouTube, you will have to pay for that service.

If you don't want to look cheap and unprofessional, you will have to pay for that.

Would you please attach the piece of code that will disable related video please.

I also add much more after my URL "rel=0&controls=0&showinfo=0" still no difference

If you go back to your YouTube account and look at the Embed Settings  .. in the advanced settings you can toggle off the feature where YouTube shows related or additional videos after your video finishes.... I can't find it ???? :(

Commented:

You don't tell us how you are creating pages on GoDaddy. The embed code I gave you must include the entire <iframe .... code and this has to be added directly to the html code.
Are you using a website builder or a CMS like Wordpress?
Some website builders have modules or blocks which just accept a URL and then write the html for you but in this case you should input the html code directly in the source if possible.

OK .. the red error message clearly indicates it won't allow you to use EMBED type urls it seems.  You definitely should NOT be using QUOTES (") in the URL
Try using the URL exactly as follows .. but if that fails you'll have to try other methods.
https://www.youtube.com/embed/qGGCRiyVK9Q?rel=0

Often these website builders are VERY limiting and do not allow you to paste or embed custom code .. and I'm not a GoDaddy website builder expert.  There may be a way to include custom HTML code in your design .. if so I'd use that and paste the full IFRAME code provided above.

Sorry but that is about all I can suggest as this is really more of an issue of the limitation of the GoDaddy website builder than the YouTube URL .. because YouTube DO allow you to turn off the related videos.

Eoinosullivan I have already tried that URL and it tells me that Embedding of this video is not allowed by YouTube"

But it says You Tube not Go Daddy ?

how can I find out where to copy that code in that template I used to build my website ?

That message is incorrect .. I'm 100% sure.
I've worked on developing hundreds of websites and it is very easy to embed YouTube videos in website pages .. as long as you have access to the source code.

The website builder from GoDaddy is clearly not able to support such URLs .. I'd suggest you see can you insert HTML code into the page design yourself .. maybe open another issue here on EE looking for GoDaddy website builder experts.  

This is not the fault of YouTube .. it's GoDaddy.

Look at this YouTube video .. it show you how to embed the iframe code in your page
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAZU0wZRz-E

Looks like it CAN be done with GoDaddy but not using the embed video icon .. you have to paste it manually in the HTML code.
