How do I add a preview image?

I need to add a preview image so that it is not just black before someone clicks play on the video.

I have a png image saved, just need to get it to show up.

I've looked at some code for similar questions but have been unable to find a solution.

This is the code that I have to embed the video on the page.

<div id="video">
<script src="" type="text/javascript"> </script>

<div style="WIDTH: 332px; PADDING-TOP: 20px; HEIGHT: 187px;">

<div id="player">This text will be replaced</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
var so = new SWFObject('','mpl','332','187','0');




var embedCode = so.addParam('flashvars','&file=');

I am not familiar with that syntax, but you would need to add a parameter for image and then use the URL of the image.

Hope this helps,
