Any way to disable related videos?

Featured Lock Resolved
I am using the video addon in SP3+ and I cant seem to get Youtube to stop showing related videos at the end of the clip. Is there any way around this, as I know Youtube changed it's policy regarding rel=0 this year?

Hi,
Thanks for your query. Yes as you know that vimeo and youtube has changed their API and there is no such option to disable the related videos. That's why we are also planning to remove that option from our addon. Since it's conflicting with it's functionality.

Dear,

Revision history
August 23, 2018
Note: This is a deprecation announcement for the showinfo parameter. In addition, the behavior for the rel parameter is changing. Titles, channel information, and related videos are an important part of YouTube’s core user experience, and these changes help to make the YouTube viewing experience consistent across different platforms.

The behavior for the rel parameter is changing on or after September 25, 2018. The effect of the change is that you will not be able to disable related videos. However, you will have the option of specifying that the related videos shown in the player should be from the same channel as the video that was just played.

To be more specific:

Prior to the change, if the parameter's value is set to 0, then the player does not show related videos.

After the change, if the rel parameter is set to 0, the player will show related videos that are on the same channel as the video that was just played.

The showinfo parameter, which indicates whether the player should display information like the video title and uploader before the video starts playing, is also being deprecated. Following the change, the channel avatar and video title will always display before playback begins, when playback is paused, and when playback ends. The avatar being displayed is new behavior that will be consistent across all embedded players.

These changes will become effective on or after September 25, 2018. After that time, the showinfo parameter will be ignored.

Sad but true ...

Best regards,
Syed H

Please check the Developer Zone for Youtube where you can customize the embeds more precisely.

Well, I'm assuming that the feature in the video addon to turn off suggested videos will be gone next SP3+ release, as it's completely useless?

The feature is doing its job perfectly by placing the parameters appropriately. However, as YouTube is ignoring it completely, it cannot take any action.

"Turn Off or On suggested videos in end of the video by selectiong 'Yes' or 'No'. Will not work in Vimeo"

If it doesn't work in YouTube or Vimeo, then what does it work in?

Have you solution, please?

We've disabled the show related videos option in our earlier version. But currently we are planning to bring it back only for youtube videos. We'll soon implement that.

Hi,
- With last youtube policy the option ?rel=0 shows the video from the own Youtube channel. This can be good. Better than nothing.
- Please: Resume the option in the new version. Can be very usefull for all PB users I think.
