How to Turn Off Suggested Videos on YouTube

YouTube is great. You get to upload videos there and it’s then really easy for you to share your video and have it play on all devices. You also get extra views of your video from the traffic that’s on YouTube.

But when I bring this up with some of my clients, I’m almost always asked the same question…

How do you turn off the suggested videos on YouTube?

It’s easy. Just add this: “?rel=0” at the end of the YouTube embed code.

For example, here’s embed code for one of my videos:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/M8NcDDc4nkc" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I like choosing the privacy enhanced mode so I don’t have to worry about the privacy policy stuff, so that’s why my embed code has “youtube-nocookie.com” in it.

There’s a section of that code that’s like this:

src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/M8NcDDc4nkc"

That’s sort of the embedded address of the video.

All you do is add “?rel=0” to the end (include the question mark – do not include the quotation marks. It’ll then look like this once you make that change:

src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/M8NcDDc4nkc?rel=0"

And your complete embed code is then this:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/M8NcDDc4nkc?rel=0" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

And that will do it!

This even works on new YouTube embedding (at the time of writing this in 2020).

Turn off the Video Title

If you don’t want the video’s title showing, use this:

?showinfo=0

or this:

&showinfo=0

per how I explain above.

Enjoy!
