Wikipedia page for Casablanca describes official poster of the movie, but
poster of a video element isn't the same thing.

For more practical example of a video poster I've found Casablanca trailer on
YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28Ud8O3KBSM. This video's poster image
is a frame from middle of the video which happens to be man in a bar and text
"Paul Henreid".

I don't think this is useful, and description of the video itself (not merely
one of its frames) may be better indicator of what video is about and what mood
it has.
