PHP code in wordpress site

Hi,
I'm managing a Wordpress site that I did not create.
There is an area on the site that shows thumbnails of videos posted into the youTube account of the site owner. Those thumnails are shown and if you click on one, it plays.
I've been asked to add a new video to the site.  I know I need to upload it to YouTube first, but I'm looking at the code on the WP site and I'm not understanding how it's getting a video list. It looks to me that $videos is just being assigned to an empty array.  The code below shows the first time in the code where $videos is mentioned (  $videos = array())
Any help in figuring out this code would be appreciated.

Thanks!


 $videos = array();
                                $winner_story = null;
                                $featured_convention = new WP_Query(array(
                                        'posts_per_page' => 1,
                                        'post_type' => 'convention',
                                        'orderby' => 'ID',
                                        'order' => 'DESC',
                                        'meta_query' => array(
                                        array(
                                                'key' => 'convention_featured',
                                                'value' => 'on',
                                        )
                                        )
                                ));

                                while ( $featured_convention->have_posts() ) : $featured_convention->the_post();
                                        $custom = get_post_custom($post->ID);
                                        $videos = isset($custom["_videos"])? unserialize($custom["_videos"][0]) : array();
                                        $winner_story = (isset($custom["winner_story"]))? $custom["winner_story"][0] : "";

                                        ?>
                            <div class="video-container">
                                <?php
                                        if( isset($videos[0]) && !empty($videos[0]) ){
                                                ?><iframe width="514" height="330" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/<?php echo youtube_videos_get_id($videos[0]) ?>" fra
meborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><?php
                                        }else{
                                                if( has_post_thumbnail( $post->ID ) ){
                                                        get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->ID, 'convention_image');
                                                }
                                        }
                                ?>
                            </div>

Looks like that post has a custom field that stores the YouTube ids. Make sure custom fields are set to display, and look fora field that hasa list of YouTube ids.
