    I recommend using CSS to position a play button over the image, you can check out this page to see how I'm using it.

    The best I can do right now is point you in the direction of this question on stack overflow.

    Can you please explain how to alter the php so that the PLAY thumbnail is only overlayed on top of certain posts?

    Thanks

    1. Assign a "video" category to posts with embeded videos.

    2. Implement a way of using category slugs as css classes. There are a number of ways of doing this. Here is one example: http://lorelle.wordpress.com/2007/09/06/using-wordpress-categories-to-style-posts/

    3. Style the video using your new css class.
