    Sup y'all. Is there a way to stop the clickthrough on a youtube video? I want to embed one on my site, but I don't want it to link to youtube.

    Many thanks :)

    So you don't want visitors to have to leave your site in order to watch the video...?

    If that's the case, just go the the youtube video and click embed and it will give you the code to enter onto your site. Also remember to UNcheck 'include related videos' as this will stop related videos being shown after your chosen video has ended and further reduce the possibilty of a visitor leaving your site for youtube.

    Thanks man. But I already do have it embedded. It's just that when people click on the embedded video it takes them to youtube and away from my site, which I obviously don't want. Is there a way to stop this from happening, so that the embedded video does not link to youtube?

    then why dont you host the video on your hosting space ? or what you can do is you can embed megavideo or other movie players.

    Visitor's can't just click play and watch it right there and then? :confused:

    How did you embed the video?
