I found an entry on the pinterest blog &, in the comments, there was a discussion about this.

One user found a way to create a pin by starting the video & pausing it a couple of seconds in - once an image appeared. It looks like the 1 or 2 seconds of blank screen at the start of most videos prevents Pinterest from "seeing" the video. He had a detailed work around that worked for some (but not all). I'll look for it and post it here if I find it.
