YouTube Hide Related Videos [BETA] ❺

Hide YouTube's annoying related video content

BETA note While this version works perfectly in our testing, we have reason to believe there is an underlying race condition occurring with the YouTube player lib. If you encounter any unexpected behaviors, please let us know in the forum ( link at top ).

When an embedded YouTube video is paused or finished playing, a series of "related videos." are shown. These often detract from your Webflow site's elegant design, and by default they can show unrelated or even a competitor's videos.

It's not ideal...

This SA5 attribute blocks the play and stop views with an overlay that can make this UX more elegant. At this point it is very simple.

It is possible to change the color and the icon however it requires knowledge of CSS. See our Styling Options for details.
