When I click a thumbnail and enlarge it says "About Blank" above the video? The video plays and shows ok and the title of the video, but seeing the text "About Blank" above it is kind of distracting and ugly. What change in settings do I need to make so that "About Blank" doesn't show anymore? 

You can look at this short video to see what I mean:



Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the screencast - makes communication so much easier!


It's effectively impossible to remove the address bar from an HTML popup window in any modern browser. This is intentional and is meant to mitigate spoofing.


Recommended workaround is to simply use another TubePress player location. e.g. Shadowbox.js or jqModal.


Hope that helps?
