    (Sorry for my poor english =P)

    i already use a theme called "Languit" in my blog (ohptm.com), all works fine except by two problems:

    -My embeded videos (Youtube, Dailymotion) don't show at home or post page. in the page of the post only show a image.

    -My post at home page got shorted by "[...]" i.e.

    TV Azteca annouce a new series like Dexter, Cane[...]all series are really good and[...]let's hope don't ruin the series with terrible dub...

    Well that's all, i hope someone can help, because i really lost with that.

    Note: the problem, obviously, is genereted by the theme. i've try to change the code in style.css, index.php, page.php and single.php. but nothing happen...

    Second problem solved; someone can say what code should change to solve the problem with embeded videos?

    As far as I remember, WordPress doesn't allow embedding of Flash videos (and I can see why as embedding Flash can present some potential security issues) and this is why direct embedding into posts doesn't work.

    To embed a Flash video, you need to install a Plugin for WordPress.

    For more information, try Googling "embedding Flash video in WordPress" or something similar.

    My problem is not WordPress, with Kubrick theme (default) the video looks fine (with plugin or not). I use Viper's Video Quicktags and the only change is that show a thumbnail instead of video.

    The problem i have is with my theme (Langit) and others like o2, Minyx, etc... I think that is a problem of some code or tag.

    I've decided to change my theme for another one, because i don't know whats wrong xD! I don't want to change because i expend much time modding... but I don't see another solution...

    MoTStudio thanks for try to help ^^

    Edit: Yeah!! xD! i've found the solution (in the forums of Viper's Video Quicktags):

    -Your theme could be missing <?php wp_head();?> inside of it's <head> which means the required Javascript file can't automatically be added. If this is the case, you may be get an alert window popping when you attempt to view a post with a video in it (assuming your problem is not also #3). Edit your theme's header.php file and add it right before </head>

    -Your theme could be missing <?php wp_footer();?> inside of it's footer.php file which means the required Javascript can't be added. Edit your theme's footer.php file and add it inside of your footer <div> or whatever. You can also just add it right before </body> if you wish.

    I knew something was wrong with the theme code =P

    --solved
