How to Embed YouTube Videos in PowerPoint

Published

on

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.

“http://www.youtube.com/embed/vvu9CBVDqhc

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! 🙂
