Forget using the <iframe> element for sharing videos to your friends. There is an easier way to do this. Now, with HTML5 you can use the <video> element:

 <!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<video width="448" height="336" controls="controls" poster="poster.jpg">
  <source src="Nole vs. Rafa.mp4" type="video/mp4" />
  <source src="Nole vs. Rafa.ogg" type="video/ogg" />
  Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>
</body>
</html>
And the output will be:

 
The <video> tag is supported in Internet Explorer 9 (earlier versions does not support the <video> element), Firefox, Opera, Chrome and Safari.

poster="poster.jpg" – specifies an image to be shown while the video is downloading, or until the user hits the play button
