Does anyone know how to link a thumbnail in Direct Publisher to a page where the viewer can read details of the video before watching it?

Re: Link a Thumbnail to a Video Details Page?

I accomplish this in my channel by using the 'longDescription' field in the Json item feed.  I then define a playlist called "New this month" that displays at the top of my channel.  It includes all new videos for the month.  When a viewer selects a video that uses the 'longDescription' field they will see a "long" description of the video.  If the video description does not fit on the screen, they can press the "*" key to display its contents.
