When posting a youtube video the title will only show up along the top once you click to play the video. I would like to show the title at all times.
In structure/filetypes on the Manage File Display I have ticked "Display video title and uploader".
I am not sure what I am missing but the video title bar shows up along the top a transparent black bar but not title shows up in that area until you click play on the video.
Any help would be greatly appreciate.

This is kind of bizarre, but it's a known YouTube bug.


In summary, the titles won't show unless someone, somewhere in the world, has watched the video on your site or on YouTube.com within the last hour. showinfo=1 has no effect.

Unfortunately there's nothing we can do here until a fix is made by YouTube or found on the Google forums.

Thank you for taking the time to let me know.

No problem. If you find a workaround, please post back here and we'll see if it can be worked into the module.

As mentioned in #1 there's nothing that Media: YouTube can do about this at the moment.
