[resolved] When Thumbnail is Clicked, Thumbnails disappear (4 posts)

    The plugin works great, but if I click on one of the thumbnails to play, say, the 2nd video in the list, all the thumbnails disappear. Is there a way to keep the thumbnail in view when the video(s) play?

    Hi fncll

    YouTube controls this functionality ;-)

    If you hover back on the player the thumbnails should reappear or if you press the playlist logo in the bottom right corner:


    Best regards

    Thanks. My confusion stems from the fact that hovering doesn't reveal the thumbnails, though the playlist icon does. I fear that most viewers won't know the latter method and will end up doing (an annoying) a back and forth to refresh the window to see thumbnails.

    If I could get the hover working, this plugin would be much more useful. Any ideas when might be preventing it?

    ok, here is how it works on my setup:

    When I fx use this shortcode

    [youlist pid="PL3FF15AA7ED356D9F"]

    I get the thumbnail-bar, and when I press play, it goes down and dissappears, when I hover over the player it shows up again.

    If I press "pause" it shows.

    On the other hand, if I use

    [youlist pid="PL3FF15AA7ED356D9F" showinfo="0"]

    the thumbnails are not shown, but if I press the playlist button in the bottom right corner it appears.

    The default is showinfo="1", so
    [youlist pid="PL3FF15AA7ED356D9F"] should be the same as [youlist pid="PL3FF15AA7ED356D9F" showinfo="1"]

    I agree with you that it would be better YouTube would allow us to keep the thumbnailview up during playback ;-)

    So you don't have the same experience?
