YouTube: Suppressing Related Videos

YouTube often shows what it considers to be related videos after playing your video, but you might not like their choices.

HotDoodle by default suppresses the playing of related videos if you merely enter the YouTube page's URL into "Option 3: Enter the URL of the page that shows the video"

If you are using Option 4, where you can enter YouTube's embed sequence, you can still suppress the related videos.
Pick a video. Click the "share" link.   Click the Embed tab
    YouTube generates an iframe embed sequence
    but below it there is a "show more"
    Click that and you get options
    Unclick "Show suggested videos when the video finishes"
