Hi all can anyone help me to either remove the "up-next" suggestions in you tube when the video is done or at-least customize it to only show my video's?.....i have tried my best with tags but now and then something bad slips through...thanks for any advice.

Hi Travelin cat....i dont know if this is the "correct" way but they keep changing things and this seems to work for now....the problem is not wanting to get clips suggested after your video (up next)that could compromise brand integrity or maybe show competitors...and this is specific to having youtube clips on websites.
We all know if we embed it is easy by adding the rel=0 it will not show "suggested" next viewing...but often we do not embed and we open in a lightbox that links directly and then it is hard to turn this off.
The trick hear and it takes time is to choose a heading that will trigger your own videos as suggestions...not so much tags..it is mainly the heading. Sign into your account and go to my videos....click on the video you want to influence and it opens in the player with a list off suggestions (to follow) down the right side of the page....now if your heading/clip name is triggering some of your own content to the right you have done a good job....now when you hover your mouse over the suggestions to the right you will see a "plus" sign + appear on the videos and here you can choose which videos you think should be suggested after your clip...by clicking on the suggested video you prefer.....this is working for me for now but who knows for how long...hope this all makes sense as i have not had my coffee yet.

Very interesting. Titles have always been important in internet marketing - looks like video is no different!
