Use a gif

See @aloisdg's answer, result is awesome, gifs are rendered on github's readme ;)

Use a video placeholder picture

If you need a quick fix just like I needed, you could trick the user into thinking the video is on the readme page with a picture. It sounds like an ad trick, it's not perfect, but it works and it's funny ;). I still strongly recommend using pages.github.com like described in VonC's answer, it will be a lot better. Here's the trick:

Insert this in your ReadMe.md file:

[![Watch the video](https://raw.github.com/GabLeRoux/WebMole/master/ressources/WebMole_Youtube_Video.png)](http://youtu.be/vt5fpE0bzSY)

It will result in this:

Watch the video

Use youtube's preview picture

You can also use the picture generated by youtube for your video http://img.youtube.com/vi/VIDEO-ID/0.jpg

Example:

[![Alt text for your video](https://img.youtube.com/vi/T-D1KVIuvjA/0.jpg)](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-D1KVIuvjA)

Result:

Alt text for your video

Use asciinema

If your use case is something that runs in a terminal, asciinema let's you record a terminal session and has a nice video preview picture. Hit share button and copy the markdown snippet.

Example:
