How To Not Show Other Videos At The End of Your YouTube Video

“Do you know how to set up the preferences so that at the end of the video it doesn’t show a whole lot of other people’s videos as options to click on to?”

Yes! Watch this video to find out.

A lot of people try and look for a youtube setting, but this option is actually found within the embed code for each individual video. (Unfortunately that means there’s no way to make this a universal setting on all of your videos.)

Go to youtube and find the page for your video. Then click “embed” below the video and make sure to UN-check “include related videos”. This will be checked automatically. Now when you embed your video on your site you won’t have to worry about all the other videos showing up at the end!

  1. Thank you for the tip! Great advice!

  2. Thanks Laura. Very useful tip.

  3. Good stuff Laura! Thank you, was wondering about this :)

  4. Woman… you rock. I just started a swipe file called “Misc. Laura Roeder Awesomeness” and dropped this link into it along with links to several other of your posts that I KNOW I’m going to need to come back to sooner than later.

    I LOVE all of these random, simple, rad ass tips!!

    BIG love!

  5. so great! thank you, i always forget how to do this.

  6. Hi. Thanks! Is there a way to make competitors videos not show up to the rigth of my video within Youtube? Also, I have tagged and retitled my video hoping to optimize it with Youtube searches for “celiac” and “gluten-free”, but to no avail. It doesn’t show up at all. Even though it has a lot more views than some of the videos that do show up in such searches. Can you explain how to make it more search friendly within Youtube?

  7. Great tip Laura,

    I thought it was funny when some related videos DID show up after I watched this video. Then I realized it was because I watched it on YouTube, not here on this page.

    Do you have any idea if you can do stop related videos from popping up on your YouTube page, too? I don’t see any way to stop them.

    Thanks again,


  8. Kelly & David – unfortunately when you’re on youtube you’re on their turf not yours so you can’t control what displays around your video.

  9. Definitely a useful tip if you want to focus on your own videos. But if you have multiple videos of your own that you want to showcase, and reduce the chance of having “other peoples” related videos, you can use plugin applications such as the AVA Video Gallery plugin.

    This plugin is a WordPress based plugin, that allows you to create a mini-gallery of your featured videos. You can check it out at: This is a plug & play plugin that can give you 3D type video galleries and you select the videos you want to show all at once.

  10. Super great Laura, I never though about this before..even though I’m not a big fan of YouTube..I still think I will share this with my readers who are.

  11. I just made a video for my community and used this tip! Thanks!

  12. Awesome tip! I’ll be making videos soon for my website and this information is invaluable. Thank you!

  13. Hi Laura,
    Just poking around and found this. I know I need to do video and I’m gearing up — and of course I like your easy “I just talk about things” style and useful tips. Hadn’t heard of this one before.

    Thanks, you young guys are so on it!
