You cannot embed a video into FR.

I take a screenshot, then save it as a .jpg, upload it to imageshack and then link the image to the youtube video.

Here is the HTML for what I do:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjO8Qc5s1fY" target="_blank"><img border="0" src="http://img600.imageshack.us/img600/5028/obamaslipup.jpg" /></a>

Here is what you get:


Of course, you must make a 'screenshot', which you can do by pressing ALT + PRTSCRN (The "Alt" and "Print Screen" keys.) Then edit it using an editor like "The Gimp.

Lastly, upload it to a free image hosting service like ImageShack.us

Good luck!
Have fun!
