This PowerPoint created on a Windows 7 machine using Microsoft Office 2010.
Here I tried Insert > Video > From Web. But at the YouTube site, after clicking share and embed code, I clicked on a choice (near bottom) of “use old embed code”. Note results in black box. Note also you can choose a size for Video Display – I chose 640 x 510, but should have chosen the larger size of 960 x 750. In normal or editing view, If double click on black box, will get pictorial video with Play Arrows.If running as a slide show, you will see the video picture with a Play Arrow button, ribbon below to Pause, etc.See tutorial at http://www.presentationmagazine.com/how-to-embed-videos-in-your-powerpoint-presentation-5961.htm which verifies that one must use the “old embed’ code from YouTube.
Here I used Insert Video from file and inserted the same Corvida Raven video that I had previously downloaded from YouTube i.e., “CorvidaRaven Geek Girl_YouTubeWmusic_viaZamZar.wmv”Note how much more attractive it looks than the black box one gets when using the Insert>Video>from Website method. Again, one must hover mouse over the video to get a ribbon at bottom where one can click Play Arrow.Note: if run this PowerPoint in Vista, will NOT get a ribbon at bottom where on can click Play, Pause, etc.

Adding a YouTube Videoto PowerPoint 2010:Alternative Methods<br />Prepared by Pat Samuel<br />Aug. 9, 2011<br />At request of SCSU Faculty Member<br />
Two Methods<br />1. Can use Insert > Video > Video from Web.<br />Be sure to select “Use Old Embed Code” at YouTube – otherwise won’t work<br />OR<br />2. Download video to your hard drive <br /> & use Insert > Video > from File<br />This method gives you more options in displaying video<br />Use www.zamzar.com to download the YouTube video in WMV format<br />Samples and detailed instructions follow. Both examples use same Corvida Raven video from YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rrb3JgX5YQ4<br />Embedding videos in earlier versions of PowerPoint is more complex. A useful tutorial for PowerPoint 2007 at http://cliotech.blogspot.com/2007/05/tech-tip-really-embedding-video-into.html<br />
Sample: Using Insert>Video>from Web& Selecting “Use Old Embed Code” at YouTube<br />While only this black box shows when running PowerPoint in editing mode, will see a more pictorial version with ribbon for Play, Pause, etc. if run in Slideshow mode.<br />Here I chose the 640 x 510 size (in YouTube dialog box), but one can choose the larger 960 x 750 size.<br />
Sample: Embed Video after Downloading to Hard Drive<br />This method results in more attractive view in Editing Mode. In both Editing & Slideshow mode, if hover mouse over the video, a ribbon appears below for playing, pausing, etc.<br />
Details: Insert Video from Web<br />In PowerPoint 2010, after you display the Insert ribbon and choose Video from Web site, a dialog box appears where you need to paste in the Embed Code.<br />Go to YouTube and display the video you want to insert.<br />Select Use Old Embed Code & choose size of video display.<br />Copy embed code & paste into PowerPoint 2010<br />
Download a YouTube Video to Hard Drive<br />1. Display your video at YouTube<br />2. Open a second window or tab in your browser and go to www.zamzar.com<br />3. Follow the directions, choosing WMV as the video format you want. <br />4. Wait for notice to appear in your email that video is ready – may take only 10 minutes; might take an hour or more.<br />
