Embedding a YouTube video with a backup image

Recommended Posts

Help me Obi-Wan you are my only hope.

I am trying to and an embedded YouTube video into an email that I am sending out to clients. The issue I have is that when the video doesnt render (pretty much all email clients) I cannot get the background image to display. So far I have tried <iframe>, <object> and now I am trying <embed>. From what I understand Gmail doesnt support iframe or object tags, which has left me attempting to use embed. I am aware that YouTube videos will not appear in the majority of email clients, which is why I am trying to specify that a fall back image appears, currently it is just showing a blank space where the image should be!

I have attached the code I have been using and would appreciate any help I can get!

From my observations, nobody ever embeds videos in e-mail, what they do is put an image that looks like a video and that image is a link to the video on youtube.
