Hi,
I'm trying to grab some videos on a YouTube channel and display them on a webpage.

I can grab all the videos but I would like them all the same size with the title and description displayed.

The first one that gets uploaded has the title and description with them but the rest does not have that.

How can I get all the videos with their respective title and description?

I have included the code for better clarification.

Thanks!

I attached the fixed code, you just forgot to add myOutput += '<p>' + entriesDescription + '<\/p>';
before he if statement inside the for loop.

<script type="text/javascript">

    function listVideos(data) {  
    var firstOutput="";  
    var entries = data.feed.entry;  
    var myOutput = '<ul>';  
    for (var i=0; i<data.feed.entry.length; i++) {    
    var entriesID=entries[i].id.$t.substring(38);    
    var entriesTitle=entries[i].title.$t;    
    var entriesDescription=entries[i].media$group.media$description.$t;
    var entriesThumbnail=entries[i].media$group.media$thumbnail[0].url;    
    myOutput += '<li><div class="entriestitle">' + entriesTitle + '<\/div>';    
    myOutput+='<iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/'+entriesID+'?wmode=transparent&amp;HD=0&amp;rel=0&amp;showinfo=0&amp;controls=1&amp;fs=1&amp;autoplay="0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen><\/iframe>';    
    myOutput += '<p>' + entriesDescription + '<\/p>';      
    if (i==0) {      
    firstOutput += '<div class="first">';      
    firstOutput += '<h2>' + entriesTitle + '<\/h2>';      
    firstOutput += '<iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/'+entriesID+'?wmode=transparent&amp;HD=0&amp;rel=0&amp;showinfo=0&amp;controls=1&amp;autoplay="0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen><\/iframe>';      
    firstOutput += '<p>' + entriesDescription + '<\/p>';  
    myOutput += '<p>' + entriesDescription + '<\/p>';
    firstOutput += '<\/div>';      
    document.getElementById('myplayer').innerHTML=firstOutput;

    }  

    }  
    document.getElementById('videolist').innerHTML = myOutput;  
    myOutput = + entriesDescription + '<\/ul>';
    }
    </script>

    padding: 5%; 
    }
    #myplayer .first iframe {
