Remove Related Videos from YouTube Embed

Hide the “more videos” section on an embedded YouTube video with this quick tip.

Something I find obnoxious is when I embed a video in an article that is meant to be helpful and it recommends related videos when paused or ended. This is often distracting to the purpose of embedding some specific video. And it puts a lot of blind trust in YouTube to find videos that would supplement the one I’m sharing.

Fortunately, there’s a way around this. You can append ?rel=0 to the embed URL and the related videos will not appear.

For example:

<iframe
src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Ljj1wGFJqPY?rel=0"
title="YouTube video player"
frameborder="0"
allowfullscreen
>
</iframe>

Here’s the difference:
