Why does the equator stay warm all year?

Why does the equator "hot temperature ring", stay in the center rather than wobble with the seasons and tilt?

I saw this example in a Flat Earth video and am having trouble finding an answer.
Every source, even the official ones, seem to give an example of a perpendicular Earth. The ones that do address the tilt, simply say that the tilt doesnt have any effect of the temperature.... does anyone have the long answer?

NOAA video for reference:

You can clearly see the warm band moving up and down in that video. The temperature in the tropics is fairly even.

I really don't see the problem here, perhaps you could explain more.

If you mean the orange band seen on the equator in the pacific, and to a lesser extent the (but not the indian ocean),

that is cooler water introduced by the south pacific gyre. Those currents stay the same year round relative to the equator, which gives you that orange/yellow line on the animation. But the larger (and warmer) red/orange band is moving as expected.

I suppose I expected more of an axis tilt/wobble rather than "bobbing", considering its a video of the entire Earth

Hmm, I kind of see your confusion there, but the video is 100% correct. I'd suggest watching some videos illustrating the seasons, like this one. Watch it in full, and at each stage imagine how heat distribution looks on a globe and one the map.

Your video shows that there is about 47 degrees of wobble per year in relation to the suns rays, right?

What it the actual reason for warm temperatures on the equator? ive found mixed answers on many official sources

There's no real wobble affecting the temperature in that video. The axis of the earth is tilted 23.5°, but that tilt does not change much - it's just on one side of the sun or the other, so tilting towards or away from the sun, so the range is +23.5 to -23.5

The higher overhead the sun is, the more sun there is per surface area, and the less atmosphere the sun has to go through, so it's hotter. It's explained in the video.

It's important to realized that the Earth's axis does not move significantly over the years, it stays pointing in the same direction. The Earth moves around the sun, and that's what causes the seasons - the position of the tilt relative to the sun.
