YouTube is a very powerful video platform. Not only is widely spread, which will give you more exposure, but also is a great tool to engage people without compromising your organization budget. However, free doesn’t always mean costless. YouTube monetization rules have changed and have changed a lot, to the point that often it’s going to display undesirable and unrelated content to the users, even though you are embedding a video on the app.
To avoid that, we can use a trick every time we are adding a video. Here are the steps:
• Copy the URL of the Video you want to add: i.e. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOBIPb-6PTc)
• Identify the Video ID. Is the part at the end of the URL: In the previous URL is this one here: ZOBIPb-6PTc
• Use this based URL: https://www.youtube.com/embed/VIDEOID?autoplay=0&rel=0&ecver=1 and replace the VIDEOID place holder with the original desired video id. In this case, it would be like this: https://www.youtube.com/embed/ZOBIPb-6PTc?autoplay=0&rel=0&ecver=1 and replace
• Now you can paste the URL into your admin.
