Embedding Website videos on PowerPoint 2010

Tomorrow I’ll be having this seminar and I wanted to show them some videos but  I do not want to do the alt+tab thingy between the video and the presentation. Plus I want to embed the video with the PowerPoint animation while the video is in YouTube!. With PowerPoint 2010, you can actually do this with some easy steps.

First is go to your video in YouTube, then click the embed button. This would show you some HTML markups, highlight em all then right click, then copy.







And then go to your presentation then click the INSERT tab.

Find the Video button, and click the small downward arrow for more options then choose Video from Website.

A dialog window will appear and just paste the HTML code from the YouTube site and then click Insert!

There you have it! an embedded YouTube video on your PowerPoint presentation:

PS. You may want to tweak it a lil bit for the animations. Cheers!!
