How to embed a youtube video in a powerpoint slide

Video is great for engaging people during a presentation, with something dynamic and emotive, or to provide a clear explanation of a difficult concept. Finding video can be difficult, but there’s a little-known site called You Tube that has a few billion videos to choose from. And you can embed You Tube video in Power Point very easily. The steps for how to embed a You Tube video in Power Point, or video from other online sources like Vimeo are pretty simple. It’s a similar process to inserting an offline video into Power Point. Go to the Insert tab on the ribbon, then Video on the right-hand side, and choose Online Video. You’ll be asked to enter the URL for the online video, and, as long as it works, a few seconds later you’ll see a thumbnail of the video with a large play icon over it. The thumbnail isn’t great quality, and you really notice the pixilation, even when small. In slide show mode you’ll see the pixelated thumbnail and then after a few seconds a crisper version appears, along with the various You Tube video elements around it, like a title, watch later, and share icons, and the familiar You Tube play button in the middle. You can either click that button to make the video play, or use the same animation settings as an embedded video to make it play in the click sequence or automatically, without having to use your mouse. Problems with embedding You Tube video in Power Point Set start time for You Tube video in Power Point You Tube video controls in Power Point Other sources of online video in Power Point Download then embed You Tube video in Power Point How to link a video in Power Point While it looks like you can use the Video Format tab on the ribbon to alter the formatting of the video, don’t be fooled! In the video format tab on the ribbon, most styles you apply will work on the thumbnail, but the video will play in a standard, flat window. You can crop the thumbnail, but the entire video will play as large as it can within the crop frame you’ve created. You can change the poster frame, but that only applies to the pixelated thumbnail. As soon as you’re in slide show mode, the thumbnail, or custom poster frame is replaced by the preview of the video with the player controls. On the Playback tab, you also don’t have the ability to trim the video or make it play full screen. So if you want the video to play full screen you have to ensure that the video frame itself fills the slide. Rather frustratingly, there also appears to be a black line at the edge of some videos while in slide show mode. It’s not consistent and it can be on any edge, so you may want to ‘crop’ that off by moving the part of the video with the line off the edge of the slide. Don’t try to be clever by using a masking object over the top of the video, or anything else as part of your story, as online videos use the old-school method of playing over the top of everything else – how very 2003! Despite these limitations, one neat feature is that you can embed a You Tube video using a timestamp, to start the video at a particular point. t=N’ to the end of your You Tube video URL, where N is the number of seconds into the video you want to start. Or by going to the video on the You Tube site, getting to the point you want using the scrubber bar, right clicking on the red current position circle, and choosing Copy video URL at current time. And then with that URL, go through the standard process to insert a You Tube video into Power Point. That way at least you can be sure of starting off at the right place, and not having to manually navigate through the video in front of your audience. Essentially, any online video is simply a window in your Power Point slide to the service’s website. So when you embed You Tube video in Power Point, you’re really getting a window to You Tube directly. And when you do start to play the video, remember that it’s just a window to You Tube, so for the first two seconds you’ll still see the You Tube controls over the video, before they disappear. Move your mouse over the video, and they’ll come back. Pause it and you’ll see thumbnails of other related videos. And if you’re signed into your You Tube account, they’ll be personalized, so your love of Greco-Roman wrestling may be shared with everyone…With You Tube (but not Vimeo) there are also ads. They’re not full videos or obtrusive pop-ups, just small, subtle grey info boxes on the top right of the video, but potentially distracting enough that you don’t want to run the risk of them appearing – especially if they’re personalized by being signed into your You Tube account. As the video is just a window to You Tube, if you click on the video, you make it the active element on the slide, so the familiar You Tube controls start to work, like space bar to play/pause and left/right arrow keys to skip forward/backwards by five seconds. You can also access subtitles/closed captioning, which is great, and video quality and playback speed. Subtitle preferences aren’t remembered, so you have to do this manually, but resolution settings will be saved for next time. It may be stating the blindingly obvious, but you have to be online to make this option work. Power Point will not store or buffer the video for you. And, frankly, I’ve had instances where the video just fails to play – even with a good Wi-Fi connection and You Tube playing in a browser. Oh, and when you open a presentation with an embedded You Tube video, you’ll get a security warning about external media objects, which may put some people off. You also have to remember to click the Enable Content button in the yellow warning message at the top of your Power Point screen, otherwise your video won’t play. Another reliability issue with this option is just what online video sources you can insert from. You Tube almost always seems to work, which is fair enough given that it’s such a huge site. But I’ve had trouble with Vimeo in the past, which is where a lot of companies add their video content as it gives you more control over the video branding and use. And sites like Metacafe and dailymotion don’t appear to work at all. And no, sadly you can’t insert Netflix video into Power Point either. It’s also worth noting that you have to put a direct link to the video when trying to insert it into Power Point. If there is a You Tube video embedded on another site, you have to add the You Tube URL into Power Point, not the other site’s URL. In some of these cases you can get around the issue by having a hyperlink to the video or site you want, which opens in a browser, but it’s not elegant. One option is to try to download the online video so you have a local copy, and you can then embed video into Power Point from your computer. This also gives you more reliable playback as you’re not beholden to a dodgy Wi-Fi connection. Sites like y2mate work pretty well for this, but remember that most online video sites don’t want you to download videos – it’s against their terms of service and it’s likely infringing copyright. As with everything, just because it’s possible doesn’t mean you should do it. In an ideal world, you’d embed a video into Power Point because, frankly, it’s the best option for playback and reliability and it’s crazy to do anything else. But it does mean that your presentation file size becomes huge, as the video is part of the deck. Embedding You Tube video into Power Point is nice because it gives you lots of choice, but you need to be online and you’re limited with playback and formatting options. If you need to minimize file size, but don’t want to use You Tube, there are way to compress video and reduce file size, but another option is to insert a linked video in Power Point instead. This means that the video file is separate to the Power Point file, so doesn’t add to the file size, but you open yourself to a world of frustration if you don’t get things right. What’s the process for how to link a video in Power Point? Go to the Insert tab on the ribbon, and Video on the right as with any video. Choose Insert Video on My PC, and find the video you want. Instead of clicking the Insert button at the bottom of the window, choose the drop-down arrow next to it and you’ll see an option to Link to File. Click that, and now you have a linked video file that doesn’t eat up your file size. It can be treated in exactly the same way as all the other techniques with an embedded video, for formatting, editing, and playing, but there are a couple of critical things to note. First, this is a linked video, not embedded, so if you share your Power Point file with others, they don’t get the video (which you may want). All they’ll see is the poster frame, but they’ll get an error message if they try to play it. Next, as it’s linked, Power Point will go looking for the video file to play it. If you’re doing this from a network drive, you need to ensure that you have sufficient bandwidth for smooth playback, and even then there may be a delay in the video starting to play, which is annoying, or may even cause you to click again and then skip past it entirely. If the video file moves to a different folder, the file name changes, or the linked file path is different in anyway way (for example a system admin makes a change to the network structure), then the video won’t work. Power Point is looking for a specific file path to follow, which doesn’t get automatically updated if something changes. A way around this is to have the video file in the same folder as the presentation when you insert the video link. That way, the folder structure and file path can change, because Power Point just looks in the same folder as the presentation. This is much safer, but the delay in playing from a network drive and need to have sufficient bandwidth still apply. If the linked video is in the same folder as the presentation, then as long as it’s still in the same folder as the presentation on someone else’s computer, then everything will play fine. But, good luck explaining all these parameters to someone and having them get it right every single time. You still have to share a large file with them – but it’s a video file rather than a Power Point deck – so you’re far better off embedding the video for the reliability that it brings, rather than run the risk of a Media Not Found error message when you’re on stage or in front of clients.
