Remove Black Load Flash on HTML5 Video

Add a poster to an html embedded video to prevent the black background from displaying on screen while the video loads:

<video width="320" height="240" autoplay="" poster="url(img/some_image.jpg);" >

  <source src="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/video/some_video.mp4" type="video/mp4">
