It couldn't be simpler as long as the video is flash-based and already online, such as YouTube.

If your flash movie (with the extension .swf) is on a different server besides YouTube (yours or someone else's) and you know the URL of the file then you can use the "Custom flash video" option and size it to your liking.

If your flash video is on YouTube then you get your code from the YouTube website by clicking the link below the video where it says "Share" or "Compartir" then select "Embed" or "Insertar", depending on your language. Be sure to select "Use old embed code" or "Utilizar el antiguo código de inserción". YouTube recently started using a new "iframe" code by default that will not work here. Highlight and copy the code. Then on this website click on the button that says "flash" to the right of the new message text area. A small window opens up with two options. Paste the code you copied from YouTube into the top option. Be sure the code you pasted begins and ends with the "object" tags, as it shows you in the window. After pasting your code, click the button that says "Insert flash video" and you're done! (If your video is on a different service other than YouTube the process should still be similar as for YouTube).
