Can I show Custom Titles, Descriptions, and Thumbnail on my Gallery?

You can set your own title, description, thumbnail, and "Special Parameters" for each video.

Use this link syntax to set custom parameters: video link,"title","description","imageurl","special_parameters","start second"

If you want to set your own title, description, and thumbnail image for the video the link should look like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baLkXC_qWJY,"Write here Title","Write here description","images/customthumbnail.jpg"

or in case you don't want to change description, leave it blank, and keep the comma. Example:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baLkXC_qWJY,"Video Title",,"images/customthumbnail.jpg"

Special parameters:

Special parameters are used with youtube playlists, standard video feeds, and user uploads and favorites.

Purpose: to sort the list, to limit or to extend the number of videos in playlist.

Use this link syntax to set special parameters:
video link,"title","description","imageurl","max-results=NUMBER,start-index=NUMBER,orderby=FIELD_NAME"

Example:
http://www.youtube.com/user/designcompasscorp,,,,"max-results=100,orderby=published"

More about Special Parameters

Start Second

start (supported players: AS3, AS2, HTML5)
Values: A positive integer. This parameter causes the player to begin playing the video at the given number of seconds from the start of the video. Note that similar to the seekTo function, the player will look for the closest keyframe to the time you specify. This means sometimes the play head may seek to just before the requested time, usually no more than ~2 seconds.

End Second

end (supported players: AS3)
Values: A positive integer. This parameter specifies the time, measured in seconds from the start of the video, when the player should stop playing the video. Note that the time is measured from the beginning of the video and not from either the value of the start player parameter or the startSeconds parameter, which is used in YouTube Player API functions for loading or queueing a video.
