I was hoping someone here has recently gone through the process of removing ads from the end of their YouTube videos. I am having a heck of a time figuring out how to do it, especially as YouTube has made some changes over the past year and most schools I have spoken with had established this before these changes went into effect.
Last I checked we are a "partner" with YouTube which allowed us to post longer videos and whatnot. The articles I'm ready seem to suggest that I have to monetize my account in order to them have the option of turning off the advertisements which seems incredibly backwards.
Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.
I assume you are referring to video ads from other brands/companies/users, not your own? If that is the case, you can turn off these ads.
1. Go to the Advanced Settings for your YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/advanced_settings
2. Scroll down to the Advertisements section. Tick the radio button next to "Do not allow advertisements to be displayed alongside my videos." (See screenshot below.)
If you wish to monetize your account, that is to receive money from ads YouTube displays on or with your videos, then you must tick the other radio button to allow ads to be displayed.
To keep ads from popping up after your video you can add a parameter to your embed code.
Here's a link to give you a clue: http://illuminea.com/remove-related-videos-from-end-of-embedded-you...
*Basically, you add the parameter:
... which means no related videos.
Debbie. This worked like a charm! Thank you!
