How to Keep YouTube Videos From Displaying After Your Video Plays

When you put yourself in front of a video camera, you’re vulnerable. You’re authentic.

That’s one reason video lets you build the “know, like and trust” relationship foundation you want to establish with your potential customers.

Don’t blow the credibility you’re building with your audience by allowing other people’s videos to display in a collage after yours. You can disable that effect in your YouTube channel.

It’s a checkbox that’s a little tough to get to, but here are the instructions.

How to Keep YouTube Videos from Displaying After Your Video Plays

Navigate to your YouTube channel and locate the video you want to adjust.

Click the headline of the video.

Click “Share,” then “Embed,” then click the “Show More” in light grey text to access the checkboxes.

      Thank you for that, Teo! I know that for me, it is difficult to put into practice all that I’ve learned. That’s another reason to stay consistent, right?

    Great tip Barbara! I’m just getting started on setting up the “tech” stuff on my channel. Although I have someone on my team that does this kind of thing for my clients, it’s great to be able to do it myself and not bug him with questions. I hope to learn more tips from you about YouTube and other topics. I’m headed over to your channel to take a look at the video 🙂

      Ianthe – Thanks so much. I know what you mean about doing some things for yourself! My husband is my “IT Dept” but he’s a little grumpy about that work sometimes so I try to find answers myself when possible. LOL

    Hi Barbara, thanks for that brilliant bit of information, I never realised that it was possible to do that! Now at least, my viewers won’t have anyone to distract them away from whatever I’m trying to tell them. That’s much appreciated.

    1. Barbara O'Toole says:

      It’s a little tip that is golden, for sure, isn’t it, Michael? It’s so well-hidden that you’ll notice many who aren’t aware of it…

    Hi Barbara,

    Thanks for sharing this great tip.

    I have heard of this before, but have completely forgotten how this was done.

    Thank you for reminding me how this is done.

    Now I know what to do for future videos so other videos do not show at the end. 🙂

      You’re welcome, Shaneman. It is well hidden. Be sure to test it after you implement! You know how Google likes to change things up!
