7.0/7 rating 1 vote

From Offices to educational institutes, people use presentations every day and one of the most used software to make the presentation on Windows or Mac OS X is the PowerPoint. With the advent of technology, presentations have become very advanced and unlike the past, people use interactive videos to make their presentations more beautiful and understanding. Are you creating a new presentation in the PowerPoint and have found a video on YouTube which can help you clear a concept or broader spectrum about a product?

Previously, people used to copy-paste the YouTube links in the presentations. However, now you can embed the YouTube Videos in PowerPoint. There are plenty of methods to embed YouTube videos depending upon the Microsoft PowerPoint version and availability. You can either add the online videos or download the videos and can directly add them from your computer.

Each method has its own advantage, an offline method is useful for those people who don’t have the internet connection all the time while the online method is better to decrease the size of the PowerPoint presentation. This article is a step by step walkthrough to add YouTube Videos in PowerPoint.

Embedding Online Videos

There are three different methods to embed online videos depending the Microsoft Office version and your operating system. Like for Mac users, the last method is perfect to add videos while for older versions of Microsoft Office, the second method is perfect. The first method is useful for those users who want to embed videos in the latest version of Microsoft Office on Windows.

1. Using Built-in option

2. Embedding Videos on Microsoft 2007 and 2010

For all those versions of Microsoft PowerPoint which does not provide this built-in options, users will have to add the YouTube videos as “Flash Objects.” However, this is not the simplest method and you will even have to enable the Developers option to complete the process.

Note: Before you continue, you will need to install Adobe Flash Player on your Windows computer. Click Here to get the latest version of Adobe Flash player on your computer and during installation, don’t forget to uncheck the installation of third party applications.
