Youtube Giveth and Youtube Taketh Away

youtube on laptop computer

Just learned today that Youtube has deprecated the ability to remove the related videos that appear at the end of an embedded video. From now on, using the rel=0 as a parameter will merely show videos from the same channel to which the video belongs.

They’ve also changed a few other parameters, take a look here.

Seems they want you to watch more videos and this function was cutting into the continued watch time. Sad, since this made for a much better viewing experience in my opinion.
