Hello,

what is an example page with video that is not detected?

Note that only videos from this sources can be detected by sitemap generator bot:
http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/video-sitemap.html
YouTube, Google Video, Vimeo, Dailymotion, MTV

(since they provide API that allow to get video details like play duration/thumbnail etc)

Hello,

you need to use youtube's embed code so that generator bot can find it, like:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/XXXXXXXXX" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
