the problem is that this may offend your viewer to the point they may not want to return to your website or watch any more of your videos you want to keep your visitors focused on consuming your own content not someone else’s Here I explain three ways to disable or stop related videos from appearing at the end of your own embedded video.
YouTube Related video Suggestions:
Tip No.1:Use Short Code
Add ?rel=0 to the end of your Video URL
For example, if my youtube URL is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjYaNnptEFs?rel=0
Tip No.2: Using Youtube Code Embed
Grab the correct embed code from youtube, First go to youtube video page which you want to embed, click on Share link, now click on embed
