[SOLVED] category link displays only text, not the embedded video

I am using wp 3.0 and ATA 351

I embedded a youtube video in a post and that works fine.
When I click on the post in the blog, the video displays.

I attached the video to the "Thai Massage videos" category. On my front page I put a link to this category, but when you click on the "Thai Massage videos" category, the post shows up, but the video does not display in the post, only the text, as you can see below.


When you click on the post title, then the video shows up.

Someone in the wordpress forum suggested the following:

edit archive.php (or category.php if it exists) of your theme;
see if you can find a line with the_excerpt();
if yes, exchange the_excerpt(); with the_content();

I cannot find archive.php or category.php in ATA editor.

My question is: how can I get the video to display when I click on the "Thai Massage videos" category link?

You are probably displaying excerpts only on the categories page look at ato->Configure EXCERPTS and check your settings
