How to link several YouTube videos to one embedded Shockwave Flash object in Excel 2010

My objective:
I have embedded a Shockwave Flash Object in an Excel sheet, and can manage to link and play video from one URL address– see video example here (How to embed YouTube video into an Excel spreadsheet - YouTube).

However, I like to use/link the same Shockwave flash object to play 5 (or 10!) different YouTube videos, and not just the one. I like to resolve this by having 5 different play buttons/icons on e.g. 5 rows linked to 5 different YouTube URLs, and when I click one of the buttons (this will change which URL will appear in the «Media» data field in the Properties box) this will change which YouTube video can be played from the embedded video frame.

In advance, thank you for your kind help.

Per R :confused:
