I have a theme that is using PHP to create a link to a specific video page via permalink:

<div class="portfolio_filter_item <?php echo $category_string;?>">
                                    <div class="project-cell">
                                        <div class="project-cell-thumb">
                                            <div class="project-cell-thumb-window">
                                                <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>">
                                                    <img src="<?php echo $project_thumb;?>">
                                                <div class="project-cell-bg"></div>
                                                <div class="project-cell-hover">
                                                    <div class="project-cell-title">
                                                        **<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"> <?php the_title(); ?></a>**

Instead of referencing the permalink of the page, I need it to reference the embed code of the video on the page so I can open the link in a lightbox. I've installed a lightbox on the site that should automatically add the lightbox effect to any class "video lightbox.iframe". Any ideas? Thanks!
