I just noticed that a video for a famous musician's FB page had a "like" button on the upper left when you hovered the cursor over it. When you clicked on the button, it changed to indicate that you now liked him.

I've been looking all over to find out how this is done. Any ideas?

TC, I would think this is an added value from one of the many video hosting services competing against the free YouTube. I saw something in an email about it the other day, but I don't have time to dig it out.

It would've been done using the open graph and hitting the same like url

[developers.facebook.com...]

Look under publishing as you can use likes
