How to Turn Off the Related Videos At the End of a YouTube Video
If you do not want to show the “suggested videos” that YouTube shows at the end of a video playback then use the following technique:

Letop de rode tekst kun je gebruiken, maar zet er wel vierkante haken om heen [  ]

Deze zijn weggelaten omdat je anders niets ziet in deze uitleg!!

Add &rel=0 at the end of the video ID which will turn off the related videos display.

Here is an example shortcode that shows you how to use this:
video_lightbox_youtube video_id="G7z74BvLWUg&rel=0" width="640" height="480" anchor="click me"
click me
Alternatively, you can use “rel=false” at the end of the video URL to turn off the the related videos. Here is an click me example:

video_lightbox_youtube video_id="G7z74BvLWUg&rel=false" width="640" height="480" anchor="click me"
click me
Automatically Use Video Thumbnail as Anchor
You can use an extra parameter in the shortcode to automatically generate and use the thumbnail of the YouTube or Vimeo video as the anchor image.

Here is an example usage of the shortcode with auto thumbnail option:

video_lightbox_youtube video_id="G7z74BvLWUg" width="640" height="480" auto_thumb="1"

Or the following for Vimeo video:

video_lightbox_vimeo5 video_id=29417470 width=800 height=450 auto_thumb="1"

The above shortcode will produce the following anchor image for the embedded video (it takes the thumbnail of the video automatically):

auto youtube video thumbnail

Using an Image as the Anchor of a Video
You can use an image as the anchor of the video (that will trigger the lightbox effect). Enter the image URL in the “anchor” parameter of the shortcode.

Here is an example usage of the shortcode:

video_lightbox_youtube video_id="G7z74BvLWUg" width="640" height="480" anchor=">

Make sure to enter a valid image URL for the anchor. You should first enter the anchor image URL in the browser’s address bar to verify that the image loads (that way you know if the image URL is valid or not).

Specifying alt Attribute for Thumbnail Image
You can use the “alt” parameter in the shortcode to specify an alternate text for your thumbnail image. Search Engines read this text description to understand what this image is about.

Here is an example usage of the shortcode with the “alt” parameter:

video_lightbox_youtube video_id="G7z74BvLWUg" width="640" height="480" anchor="" alt="text that describes this image"
text that describes this image
