    The thumb functionality is defined by YouTube, so I can’t change that.

    But you can press the playlist button (small play icon on the right side of the player) to display the video-thumbs at any time.

    The solution is “&showinfo=1″
    Complete piece of code looks like this “http://www.youtube.com/embed/cYaGXEzofMI?list=PLB8444444444FE&showinfo=1″

      @Geo Moor, thanks for sharing.

      The shortcode has showinfo=1 as a default setting but it can also be turned off with

      [youlist showinfo="0" ]

    Thanks for a brilliant plugin! Is it possible to hide all info (video title in the top, playlist name), but always bring up the playlist on stop?

      - and also show the playlist on player load (both instances with thumbnails)?

      Hi @Aurie, thanks

      You can check out these options (not the full list) that the offical YouTube player supports:

      - modestbranding [0|1] – Prevent the YouTube logo from displaying in the control bar
      - showinfo [0|1] – Display thumbnail images for the videos in the playlist
      - autohide [0|1|2] – Hide the video controls automatically after a video begins playing
      - autoplay [0|1] – The initial video will autoplay when the player loads
      - disablekb [0|1] – Disable the player keyboard controls
      - controls [0|1|2] – Display the video player controls
      - theme [dark|light] – Dark or light control bar
      - color [red|white] – The color in the video progress bar
      - fs [0|1] – Display the fullscreen button
      - rel [0|1] – Show related videos when playback of the initial video ends

      You might not get everything you want, but you could try to play with these options:

      [youlist pid="PL3FF15AA7ED356D9F" showinfo="0" controls="2" autohide="2" modestbranding="0" autoplay="0" disablekb="0" theme="dark" color="red" fs="0" rel="0"]

      Cheers

    This plugin is not showing the search results for any searches using Youtube. All I get is a black screen and the wheel spinning round and round in the center. Youtube appears to have changed something as it appears many plugins are having this same problems. Wish the developer would respond with some kind of fix or updated plugin.

    My code is:
    [youlist vid="MntbN1DdEP0,tg00YEETFzg,-zzP29emgpg,PVzljDmoPVs,1G4isv_Fylg,BofL1AaiTjo,BofL1AaiTjo,z29nI8RQV0U,BofL1AaiTjo"]
    I want to take random thumbnails
    How do I do this?
