When clipping a YouTube video to the paper, when the video finishes playing for a reader, then YouTube shows "suggestions" at the end. Very often these are unhelpful to the treatment of a subject matter by the original video. Sometimes they are entirely opposite to the position taken by the original posted video.
Google themselves recognize that their algorithm for detecting similar videos cannot deal with the paradox, that the subject matter may be the same, but the argumentative position is completely the opposite in many cases. This is especially true where the subject matter may be controversial.
So the in the case of YouTube videos a user may add the parameter ....
&rel=0 to the end of a YouTube URL when embedding in a script of player applet. Then when the video ends, instead of some incongruous suggestions, the picture reverts to the video thumbnail instead.
We would wish to have this option here at Paper dot li. With a tickbox or some such method when clipping a video from YouTube. Other video providers may have similar options.
Here is suggestion, add a tickbox like so.
a user then clicks to put "x" in box when they
DO NOT WANT SUGGESTIONS SHOWN AT THE END
