I own a website with some instructional videos. How do I make Google show snapshots of the videos in search results for website? (like it does for http://www.google.com/search?q=metallica+live&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official youtube.com or msnbc.com)

When people search mywebsite.example.com, I want them to see snapshots of the videos I have and links to them.

If you haven't yet created a Video Site Map, I'd start there:

The Google video extension of the sitemap protocol enables you to give Google descriptive information—such as a video title, description, duration, etc.—that makes it easier for users to find a particular piece of content.

Cool, thank you very much, I will start with this. – f.ardelian Nov 11 '10 at 22:21
