You can get thumbnails from a Google API

http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos/?vq="+escape(SEARC_STRING)+"&aq=f&start-index=" + PAGE_INDEX;


var _httpSearch:HTTPService = new HTTPService();
_httpSearch.resultFormat = 'e4x';
_httpSearch.showBusyCursor = true;
_httpSearch.addEventListener(ResultEvent.RESULT, onSearchResult);
_httpSearch.url = "http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos/?vq=Star Wars&aq=f&start-index=1";

function onSearchResult( event:ResultEvent ) : void {
      var movies:Array = [];
      for each( var entry:XML in event.result..entry ) {
            var group:XML = entry.group[0];
            var movieID:String = group.player.@url.split( /=/ )[1];
            movies.push( {
                  thumbnail:group.thumbnail[0].@url.toString() } );
