Small snippet showing how to embed a YouTube video in a QWebView. This also demonstrates Qt support for flash. First create a Qt Gui Application using Qt Creator and add a QWebView to it.

Now add network and webkit support to your .pro file

QT += core gui network webkit

Now add this in your mainwindow.cpp file

MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent) 
    : QMainWindow(parent)
    , ui(new Ui::MainWindow)
{
    ui->setupUi(this);
    QNetworkProxyFactory::setUseSystemConfiguration(true);
    QWebSettings::globalSettings()->setAttribute(QWebSettings::PluginsEnabled, true);
    QWebSettings::globalSettings()->setAttribute(QWebSettings::AutoLoadImages, true);
    ui->webView->load(QUrl("http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aR27FLbb04"));
}

You should be able to load the webpage with the embedded video in it. You could also embed this video only in an object tag in a local html file and just point the url to this local file.
