In December, Jens Axel Søgaard asked about embedding a YouTube video
in the Scribble HTML output:

> But since the element passes through the renderer, I get the above

I didn't see a solution to this, and I would like to do the same
thing?  Is there a way to do this?  Ideally, I would like a
conditional form that allows me to embed the video in HTML output or
an image (such as a screenshot from the video) if the output is PDF.
