I would like to have an introductory video on my homepage, and I'm considering embedding a YouTube player.

A problem I see is that, at the end of the video, YouTube will be suggesting other videos. This is a good chance for users to "escape" the website.

Can I somehow modify this "end of video" page so that it displays a blank screen, or something?

1 Answer 1


Yes. There's a rel=0 parameter for precisely this purpose, that was introduced in June 2007. Read the YouTube embedded player parameter documentation for details.

  • Thanks. That removes the related videos. However, how can I remove the "permalink" and "embedding HTML"? I just want a "Replay" button.
