In the past the only way to navigate around this problem was to download the video with a tool like Keepvid. However, earlier today Matt Spiva directed us to another handy resource - SafeShare.tv.
SafeShare.tv is a website that strips out advertising and related videos from YouTube content without having to download the video. To use SafeShare.tv you just need to copy and paste the URL of the video you want to show from YouTube and SafeShare will redirect you to a page with the same video minus the advertising and related videos. For example, below are two videos from ABC News
- YouTube Version (Contains advertisements and related videos)
- SafeShare.tv Version (No advertisements or related videos)
Take a moment and bookmark this resource. You will probably find it handy in the future and thanks to Matt for finding it for the rest of us!
