How to Embed YouTube Videos in PowerPoint



So here we are with another informatic post for How to embed Youtube Video in PowerPoint in seconds and ease! Embedding Youtube Video in PowerPoint is not a very easy task indeed but is important sometimes.

Why embed Youtube Video in PowerPoint?

The question is very clear in all senses, and the answer for this will also be the same, Yes adding a Youtube Video in PowerPoint presentation will add a lot of good effects including sympathetic support from the audience.

A video explains few things better than slides so after the presentation adding a summed up video of the presentation will leave a better impact of the product you are presenting.

A few things cannot be explained in presentation like working off some machinery so adding an animated video will always make it crystal clear to the viewer.

Now If anyone is interested to know that how to o this then read on to take the advantages of the stated above.

Embedding Youtube Video in PowerPoint!

We have 3 ways to embed a Youtube video into a presentation. Firstly one can embed it into the presentation which will require good internet connectivity when running the presentation.

Secondly, One can export videos from Google Docs. The third simple is to download youtube video into your hard disk and insert it simply!

Embed YouTube Videos Directly into PowerPoint!

This method is recommended only if one has the security of a good internet connection at the venue of the presentation.

One can do this by Downloading and installing the YouTube Wizard plug-in and it will add a new “Insert YouTube Video” command to your PowerPoint Toolbar.

One can easily resize and reshape the player like any other object in powerpoint which makes it really versatile to use!

You simply have to type the URL of the YouTube video and follow the wizard to embed the YouTube video player in your current PowerPoint slide.

Get Videos from Google Docs into PowerPoint

While Google Docs does provide an “Export as PPT” option, the problem with this format is that it converts all embedded YouTube clips into static images which is something you don’t want.

There’s however a simple workaround – just publish that Google Docs presentation as an HTML slideshow and then insert it like a web page in PowerPoint.

Thus you can play YouTube clips inside PowerPoint even though they are part of your Google Docs presentation.


An advantage of this approach is that if you change any of the YouTube videos clip in your original Google Docs presentation, it will be reflected in the PowerPoint presentation as well.

Embed Youtube video in PowerPoint from your PC!

This is the best-opted option for when one is not sure for internet connectivity at the venue.

Also adding this method is not versatile with the people who change their laptop regularly as one has to copy the video along with the presentation whenever it is to be presented.

First, download the YouTube video to your computer in either Windows Media or AVI format since PowerPoint doesn’t understand the default FLV or MP4 formats of YouTube.

Once the video is saved as an AVI or WMV file, switch to PowerPoint and choose Insert – > Movie – > “Movie from file” to put the YouTube video into the current slide.

This was just how to add Youtube Video in PowerPoint with 3 easy methods! comments and problems are always welcomed in the comments! 🙂

How to Downgrade IE 11 to 9?




Internet Explorer needs no introduction. It is the inbuilt internet browser that comes with every Windows machine.

IE was a widely used browser having made its first appearance in 2002. But the success of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome has given strong competition to IE, thereby preventing it from grabbing more market share.

But still, many people still use the default browser bundled with Windows. Developers can’t just avoid IE as many legacy software is made to support only Internet Explorer.

That’s why today I am here with a post that makes every IE lover happy. Microsoft had rolled out many Internet Explorer updates. But we can’t trust any of them blindly.

If you are using IE 11, you might have faced many issues with it. Many users have reported issues in it. So, in this post, I am sharing a way to downgrade IE 11 to 9.

How to Downgrade IE 11 to 9?

You may feel this task a walk in the park. But, the fact is different. You can’t just uninstall IE 11 as any other software and install IE 9 right away with a setup file.

In the case of ordinary software, you have to open Programs and Features (Windows 7). Then, double click on the particular software you want to uninstall from a list of all. The process will be started soon.

If you want to install an earlier version of the same software you have just uninstalled, downloading the setup file and installing will work. But it is not the same case with IE.

The main problem is it can’t be seen in the list of all software. When you try to install IE 9 from an executable file, you will get an already installed warning (Refer to the image given below).


Is it really a walk in the park?

Now, we can proceed to the following steps to downgrade IE 11 to 9.

Step 1: Open Control Panel. For that, click on the Start button or hit the Win key. You will get the start menu. The Control Panel option is available on the right column. Click on it.

Step 2: You will see a window like an image given below. Here, every control option is available for your computer. Click on Uninstall Programs under Programs.

Step 3: Now, a list of installed software will be shown. If you are still hesitant, check yourself in the list to find Internet Explorer. You can’t find any system application there.


So, Click Turn Windows Features On or Off.

Step 4: You may be asked for administrator access. Click on Yes if it prompts. A small window will get opened which asks you to Please wait.

After some time, you can again see a list of checkboxes.

Step 5: Uncheck Internet Explorer 11 folder. Microsoft never wants to see their users turning off default services. So, they will give you a caution.


See the image given below to see what exactly they say. Don’t hesitate to choose Yes. Click OK to save your latest change.


Step 6: Click on View Installed Updates just above Turn Windows Features On or Off using that you have unchecked IE 11.


Step 7:  Now, you will be shown with a list of updates. As IE 11 is an upgraded version, you can spot it right there.

Right click on the same and choose Uninstall.


(If you are flooded with a massive list of updates, utilize the search bar to find IE 11).

Step 8: Windows will ask you to restart the system. In case you want to use IE urgently, restart without any delay by selecting Restart Now. Or else, go with Restart Later option.


Step 9: After restarting, open Internet Explorer. You should confirm the version of IE, which you have now on your PC.

Step 10: Click the gear button on the right top of the IE window and below the title bar. You will get a menu with 10- 11 options. Select About Internet Explorer at the end.


You can see something like this.


See, mine was downgraded to IE 10. But seriously, you need to downgrade IE 11 to 9, right? What to do if you get the same outcome.

Follow Step 11.

Step 11: Don’t worry. You can quickly revert the version to 9. Repeat the process from Step 6. (Note that you will see Internet Explorer 10 everywhere. So, you have to uninstall the same as you have already done 11).

That’s all. You now know how to downgrade IE 11 to 9.

What do You Think?

I have provided you with an easy and step by step process to downgrade IE 11 to IE 9. The process is very simple than you think. You were not aware of the solution. That was the problem.

Now, you have got everything. Try yourself to downgrade IE 11 to IE 9.

Follow the exact steps given above. I am sure that it will help you. In case of any issues, feel free to ask via comments.
