    Hi,

    The autoplay feature in Youtube is specific to your own Google account or browser settings:

    If you turn this option off in YouTube, the next video will not automatically play when your video finishes.  It is not something that can be controlled from your JotForm account.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.

    Thanks David. The autoplay is checked off but next videos still play.  What else am I missing?

    Try clearing your browsers cache and cookies.  The setting may still be stored in your browser, causing your videos to autoplay.  I tested several of the videos in your form and none of the played the next video automatically.  So I am fairly certain it is a browser based setting rather than an issue with your embedded videos themselves. 

    You can also turn off showing any related videos whatsoever.  Here is a quick video on how to do so:

    " rel="nofollow">https://

    If the videos are still automatically playing, let us know and we will be happy to see what else we can find.

    when done viewing the videos, autoplay doesn't take effect, but a new video is present in the screen. Is it possible to keep the old video in there so a person can re-watch the video?

    Please try adding the youtube URL in the format as below :

    http://www.youtube.com/v/1HlZj7-kf_Y&rel=0

    Adding &rel=0 should stop showing the related videos after playing the embedded video.

    Hope this information helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    I added &rel=0 to all the videos and while they don't play the next video, they still show an image of a different video, see attached.

    When getting the embed code for your video, there is a box you can check to enable or disable this option:

    Though all this does is add the rel=0 to the URL that my colleague suggested doing.

    When I checked the link provided, there we no longer any suggested videos.

    You can try adding ?rel=0 instead.  That is the way Youtube constructs the link without the related videos.

    I added ?rel=0, same result.  

    And yes, that's already been checked off.  I can't figure this out.

    I think the Youtube widget constructs its own link to the video from your URL.  You may need to use the actual embed code in a "Text" field instead.  Add a "Text" field to your form, then click to edit the HTML:

    Then copy your embed code into the HTML source editor and click update.  After that, click "Complete" on the Text field to complete the update.  This will allow you to use your embed code rather that that of the embed widget.  I tested the first video in your form and it no longer automatically plays or suggests videos:

    You would unfortunately need to do this will all your videos but it should work.
