Hide "Description" on listbar / Display only Thumbnail and Title

Hi, I am using the listbar to display the playlist, and I am getting my playlist from an RSS file. But here's the problem: I do not want to include the description on the listbar, only the thumbnail and title.

I am aware of the Layout property but only can use "basic" or "extended" and none of them is giving me what I need.

Any suggestion? Thanks

Here is a page where the player is embedded:

And here is my player's code:

<div id="myplayer">Loading the player...</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
playlist: "/7.30/xml/mediarss-largethumb.xml",
height: 308,
width: 900,
aspectratio: "16:9",
displaytitle: false,
listbar: {
position: "right",
size: 335

Hi again, so what I ended up doing is changing values on the css to hide the description and extend the space of the title so it doesn't get cut.

Maybe not the most elegant solution though. And I think it doesn't work on IE.

Here the CSS I added:

.jwdescription {
display: none !important;

.jwtitle {
height: 100% !important;

Yeah, that'll be fine provided your player doesn't render in Flash mode.

Your best option might be to build a custom listbar using your own CSS. This will work in both Flash and HTML5 mode.
