Welcome to the forum Ian!
Need some details! What software are you using and what is the version number? What kind of computer are you using? Where did the video files come from? And, how did the file names get on the videos start? Where is the automatic filename coming from? I have not seen that as an option in the Premier Elements versions that I've used.
Thanks…apologies for the lack of detail, I was thinking it was an obvious APE11 menu option.
I am using APE11, on a HP DV6 laptop, with 8GB of ram and Windows8 64bit OS
The files were originally recorded on a sharp camcorder – some time ago…..
I have recorded these onto a dvd, then ripped to the Computer to edit as vob files
The camera used to record the date at the beginning of each clip.
The filename doesn’t show on the preview but does show up on the rendered file.
It shows up as vector text and if you change the name and re-render then the new filename appears.
I also have some more recent video taken from a digital camera as mp4 files, they have the same issue.
Thanks in advance

At first, I thought I might be able to help. But, I'm in over my head. Perhaps someone else that understands vob files better can help.
Are you sure it is embedded in your video and not just a 'feature' of your video playback software / device?
You could add some black space at the beginning of the movie before you display your own text.

You are a legend….. Thanks for looking outside the square
I was frustrated I was missing a setting in APE11, but it was as you suggested a feature of the media player I use.
I mostly use VLC media player as it plays a lot of different formats
I opened the same movies with windows media player, and the filename display is gone
Thanks very much for taking the time to reply, much appreciated….
