The title of the video is gone!

Don't we all just hate when this happens? You are suddenly missing a YouTube video from your carefully assorted playlist and can't even tell which video it was exactly. Now all you see is a useless [Deleted video] or [Private video] instead of the original video name.

Thanks YouTube!
