Blogging Tip - YouTube Videos - Radiant

The Radiant Blog

YouTube is pretty standard across the board these days as the video-hosting service of choice for a majority of web users. There are others out there, like Vimeo and Viddler that have a strong following of their own, but YouTube is definitely #1 in this space.

However, one challenge presented in re-purposing YouTube videos on your blog is the fact that after your video of choice plays, YouTube features a group of related videos, the content of which isn’t guaranteed to be ministry-website friendly.

The good news is that there’s a way to stop YouTube from showing those related video links when your video stops playing. Simply add &rel=0 to the end of the URL that you copied and pasted from YouTube to embed your video in your blog/website and instead of getting related videos when your video finishes, you’ll get a replay video link.
