The following applies only to Spotlightr videos that have their source linked over from YouTube.

On September 25th, 2018. YouTube will start forcing related videos to be played at the end of the video and when the video is paused, in addition to which they will also show channel avatar and video title in the player.

Will my videos be affected and how?

First thing to determine is if your videos playing in Spotlightr have the YouTube logo in the bottom right corner. If they don't then none of the changes will apply to your videos as they will remain unaffected.

If you do have a YouTube logo in the bottom right corner, then the following changes will happen.

  1. Related videos from the same channel will be shown when the video ends and when it's paused.
  2. Channel avatar and link as well as video title and link will be shown in the player.

NOTE: There are a few mentions also about YouTube preventing autoplay of videos, which are not fully specified so we will have to wait and see how that plays out.
