I've added two videos but I can't edit their titles as URL is shown as title, how can I edit it?
It seems to me that this option was available in previous version of user interface.
Here is how it look:

Also no titles appear on my videos list of these two last videos!

    Please try editing the subtitles to your videos now.

    After you get past Type step, you will be taken to Subtitle Info screen, where you can edit the title and description of your video in the desired language. (Yes, I know that screen wasn't there before :) )

    I believe this should solve the problem, but if you have questions or run into problems, please let me know ASAP.

    Yes it works thanks, but only for Italian subtitles that I've edited.
    I think that title and description should be edited outside the subtitling
    In my case I've to add an english (incomplete) subtitles only to edit the
    title of the video.
    Is it correct?

    Hi Carlo,

    Yes, this is the way it works at present.

    In the past, we did have it work as you described, with title being edited through a separate dialog. However, this caused a lot of confusion with the users, since many were unaware which exactly title they were editing - the original one, or a translation into one of the languages.

    The idea behind the change was to put editing title into the context of editing the whole subtitle set and thus to make users aware of the language. Before we make any further changes, we'd like to see how people are going to use this feature and what problems they'll experience. You input is gratefully noted and appreciated.

    We are changing really fast, so please stay tuned for more updates! Thank you for your patience, participation and support.

    Happy subtitling!
