    The YouTube API no longer has parameters for changing the title area. They have been deprecated for several months now.

    Hi EmbedPlus Team

    Appreciate that you removed that useful feature in your plugin.

    The upper title area is shown when the web-page is downloaded at the beginning (at the static mode), however the upper title area disappears on the web-page once the youtube video starts playing.

    Can you suggest at least how to remove the youtube title video at the downloaded webpage (at the static mode) i.e. via your “Embed manually” option or other editing solutions with Original Embed Codes, etc.

    Perhaps it wasn’t clear in our earlier reply that YouTube/Google is no longer supporting that feature. We didn’t have anything to do with it. That’s why it’s not presented as an option in the plugin anymore.

    Here’s a quote directly from YouTube/Google:

    The key text is:

    Note: This is a deprecation announcement for the showinfo parameter. In addition, the behavior for the rel parameter is changing. Titles, channel information, and related videos are an important part of YouTube’s core user experience, and these changes help to make the YouTube viewing experience consistent across different platforms.

    The behavior for the rel parameter is changing on or after September 25, 2018. The effect of the change is that you will not be able to disable related videos. However, you will have the option of specifying that the related videos shown in the player should be from the same channel as the video that was just played.

    To be more specific:
    Prior to the change, if the parameter’s value is set to 0, then the player does not show related videos.
    After the change, if the rel parameter is set to 0, the player will show related videos that are from the same channel as the video that was just played.
    The showinfo parameter, which indicates whether the player should display information like the video title and uploader before the video starts playing, is also being deprecated. Following the change, the channel avatar and video title will always display before playback begins, when playback is paused, and when playback ends. The avatar being displayed is new behavior that will be consistent across all embedded players.
    These changes will become effective on or after September 25, 2018. After that time, the showinfo parameter will be ignored. The behavior following the changes is consistent with the current default behavior for embedded players with the exception of the channel avatar changes mentioned above.
