If both image exist, why not select both and group them? Or do I miss

I've copied just the movie, and pasted in Fireworks, and if the MPEG is still playing in Windows Media Player, it plays correspondingly in Fireworks also. There are no actions I can take on it to convert it into bitmap, so, as you say, it is the screenshot is not copying into memory a simple raster image.
There was also no way to group the original two layers either.
Perplexing, but not critical at the moment.
