I am using the method describe here:

Example (random, of course), with this video:

It is probably not what you want but we propose HTML5 first, and if the
browser does not support html5 video, we fallback on flash (Francesco, I
am aware that Flash is not free ;) ).

        <div class="on-video-thumbnail">

	    <video width="720" height="576" controls="control"
tabindex="0"><!-- lists the available video files for the player:
type="video/webm"></source><!-- specify the actual player: --><object
width="720" height="576" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
	            <param name="movie"
value="http://www.irill.org/media/flowplayer-3.2.5.swf"; /><param
value="true" name="allowFullScreen" /><param value="transparent"
name="wmode" /><param name="flashvars"
alt="An Introduction To Jenkins.debian.net" title="No video playback
capabilities, please download the video below" /></object>
