The simples way (all though arguably not the best way) would be to find the
right place in the code(somewhere in modules/video_output/x11/xcommon.c I'd
guess). At that place, insert a call to config_GetPsz( p_vout, "video-title"
If the return value is not NULL or empty replace the default string with
this functions return value.

Then after this change the --video-title command line option, and the
corresponding preferences entry should be working on linux as well.
