YT Live playback question, block recommended videos??

#1

Post by dbaresrc »

With the very, very sad announcement of the end of the Church system, we're looking at YTLive as a potential replacement.

I created a channel for the stake and have done one or two tests through it. The problem / question I have is how can I get rid of the "recommended" videos to the side of our playback?

As you can see, if someone selects the channel then the broadcast stream, there's junk on the right we don't want. I realize it may be user specific but is there a way to get rid of it entirely within our channel or is that the penalty of using YT?

Thanks

You're right, it's controlled by each viewer. The only way to get rid of the "recommended videos" sidebar is for the viewer to go "full screen" once the program starts.

The other recommended thing is for each viewer to turn off the "Autoplay" at the bottom of their screen. It defaults to ON, but once toggled it will stay that way.
So we can better help you, please edit your Profile to include your general location.

It will only stay that way if the viewer logs in to YT to watch. If they watch without logging in to YT (or if they don't have a YT account), autoplay will always be on (at least that has been my experience).
