Re-Directing BACK to Company Website after Company Youtube Video Finishes - can it be done ?

Re-Directing BACK to Company Website after Company Youtube Video Finishes - can it be done ?

(OP)
The idea dawned on me, that upon the completion of a youtube video for one of the worlds BIGGEST 3D Printing Prosthetics Company ( yeah, somehow my dumbass has been contacted by this firm to make them a website lol- how ? no idea - but i have to make them one now lol) the user is IMMEDIATELY re-directed back seamlessly to the website page.


On all sites that ive been to, when the vid finishes thats it, you have to either replay it to watch it again - or if you want to go back to the companys website, you hit the 'back' button on the browser.

Hardly desirable tbh, not good for usability I would say. lol

What would experienced seasoned veteran web designers/developers say about using 3rd party Video plugins ?? the company will deal with using the best available backbone/hosting for their site and will pay for any 3rd party plugins etc i need which is a relief lol

So, any ideas folks ? Or am I to innovate something to achieve this (as always) ?

any tips/pointers in the right direction would be appreciated - and yeah, im still in shock that i've been assigned to make this firm's website heh

Use ActionScript in the final 'key' frame to set document.location using ExternalInterface.call

Are viewers on the company's site and then watching the YouTube video or are visitors on YouTube.com? If the former, why use YouTube at all?

What's a third party plugin? To what are you plugging in?

I wouldn't have them ever leave the Company's site to begin with. You can display a YouTube video in a media window or iframe on one of their pages. The video is being served from YouTube, but they never actually "go" there. They stay on the Company's site. No dumb redirect games that may or may not work for everyone.
