Avoiding Related Videos display in Story maps or Map Notes

Blog Post created by jkerski-esristaff Employee on Sep 8, 2015

I think many of you in education (and beyond) can relate to this:

 

When you embed a video in a story
map or in a map note, when it is done playing, by default it shows you the “related” videos –
and “related” is definitely in quotes!  Sometimes these are really
embarrassing and sit there in your story map as a set of “tiled” choices, OR
worse yet, are on the “big screen” when you are presenting to a group. 

 

Here is a little tip to avoid
that:

 

So, for example, compare this
embed video of mine (you can skip to just a few seconds to the end to test it):
https://www.youtube.com/embed/4IoImv0SyLM?rel=0

 

versus this one:  https://www.youtube.com/embed/4IoImv0SyLM

 

The one with the rel=0 does not
show the “related” ones at the end!

 

If you forget the ?rel=0 code,
then in YouTube just go to Share, Embed, and Show More, and you’ll see the
choice there that you can Uncheck to avoid the related video display.

 

Thanks Owen Evans for the information!
