Do not show File/Production Name during Playback

I'm using Camtasia 2018. When I play the resulting .mp4 file, the name of the production or file appears on the bottom left hand corner when the video starts, or anytime the user pauses and restarts it. Is there a way to prevent this? The name of the file may not accurately describe the content of the video, and it's distracting to the end users when they are watching the video.

 How are you playing the video back?

If it is locally  it could be a setting in the player you are using.

This can also be the case of some web players.

I myself do not have the name showing anywhere except in like VLC if I play the video locally.

the only time I see the video file name display is when I play an MP4 directly, and it displays in the Windows media player; it only shows for a second

if you produce to MP4 with controller/player, and launch using one of the html files, the video will display in a browser; the file name does not display

you can use a lead-in within your project to present a more appropriate title

perhaps see this example ...
