Support » Plugin: WP YouTube Lyte » Not showing updated Video Title

  • Resolved Gulshan Kumar


    Hello dear Frank,

    Hope you are doing well.

    I need a help. Recently, I had changed my YouTube Video title and its thumbnail too. I liked the way as Thumbnail automatically changed; but sad thing the old title is still showing.


    <div class="lyte-wrapper fourthree" style="width:480px;max-width: 100%;margin:5px auto;">
    <div class="lyMe" id="WYL_videoid">
    <div id="lyte_videoid" data-src="" class="pL">
    <div class="tC">
    <div class="tT">This is a title which is not showing updated one</div>
    <div class="play"></div>
    <div class="ctrl">
    <div class="Lctrl"></div>
    <div class="Rctrl"></div>

    This is just happening on a single existing post which is very long content. But, when I drop the YouTube link in after creating new post or other existing post. Then, everything is okay.

    One thing, please note: I am adding video link by going to the text part-source code, not from visual editor. This is because, I don’t want to mess up with the formatting.

    I tried to clear Purge Cache, tested in incognito window and proxy browsers. Nothing change. Also, to cross verify I checked YouTube Video info translation part, there title is also okay according to the set language.

    Is it something where I making mistake?

    hi gulshan;
    wp youtube lyte has it’s own cache for the info from youtube. did you try ticking the “clear cache” option on lyte’s settings-page? if that does not work, you can always use this trick to visualise the cache on your edit post page.

    hope this helps,

    Gulshan Kumar


    Really great help. Thankyou so much.


    Hello @frank,
    How are you?

    I am wondering why video/playlist are not updating automatically in the real time?

    After a long time, I am here. Recently I cleared cache again via plugin settings. But, the things went opposite. A playlist video thumbnail updated, but suddenly at my previous embedded video changed to the earlier state (As I had mentioned in the thread title)

    Right now, the main problem I am facing a similar issue with YouTube playlist and one video.
    There is a YouTuber who regularly updates his playlist which I have added to my blog.
    When a playlist creator updates video, automatically at my article the Playlist thumbnail is not updating in the real time.

    When a visitor clicks on Playlist, it plays new video, but before to the visitor it shows the last thumbnail of the playlist (According to the last time – when I had added the playlist or cleared the cache). Hence, it creates the misleading experience.

    Summary: In a playlist, the thumbnail is not updating and in video Title is not updating.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Gulshan, how are you? 🙂

    Summary: In a playlist, the thumbnail is not updating and in video Title is not updating.

    that’s because the YouTube API response (with the thumbnail URL for a playlist and the title for a video) are cached by WP YouTube Lyte (in post_meta).
