Any update RE forcing videos to be what appears on Reader?

  1. Hi, I saw this forum post which is now closed: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/why-does-reader-show-video-rather-than-first-image?replies=15

    Basically if a youtube video is embedded in a post, that video will show up in the reader, and it doesn't matter if you choose a featured image or not, the image will not be what appears on the reader.

    I saw in the above forum that WordPress acknowledges this problem exists, but the member of staff did not indicate anything was going to be done about it. What I want to know is, will anything be done to fix this?
    It is a serious problem for me as I recently put up a post that depended on a particular picture showing on the reader, but the body of the post itself depended on an embedded youtube video to illustrate the point I was making (I couldn't rely on the reader taking the trip to youtube via link, it had to be seen). Please, please fix this as the nature of my blog depends on having this function. I imagine others are the same.

    The blog I need help with is humanwildtype.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi there - Currently, this is the intended behavior. The video is meant to be prioritized. I'm not sure if that will change.
