MSNBC video code

I am needing help with code using videos from http://www.msnbc.com

It has a few dirrent video ID's but I would like to make a BB code from it that's easy to use?

Code:
<object width="420" height="245" id="msnbc65b013" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=10,0,0,0"><param name="movie" value="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32545640"><param name="FlashVars" value="launch=36674346&width=420&height=245"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="wmode" value="opaque" /><embed name="msnbc65b013" src="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32545640" width="420" height="245" FlashVars="launch=36674346&width=420&height=245" allowscriptaccess="always" allowFullScreen="true" wmode="opaque" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></embed>

helpline:
Code:
[msnbc]video ID[/msnbc]


example:

Code:
[msnbc]36675602[/msnbc]


use the number in red from the URL

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032619/vp/36675602#36675567

haven't tested it, but i looked at some embed codes, and seems like that is the video id, test it and let me know if it works!
