Sorry Sayontan I will try to explain another way.
I love what the built-in excerpt control does to text and images. Showing a thumbnail and the except is perfect for pictures and text. However, I am trying to find a way to get video to show just like pictures do and then if a user wants to click on the title they can read the whole text of the post.
This is the blog I'm working on for my wife and a friend of hers.http://www.overopinionated.com
One of the most recent posts has a YouTube video and I was wanting that to show up on the home page similar to how a picture would.
I found some code that I added to get the "...Read More" link. Now I'm just down to figuring out how to get the video to do what I want.
