Selecting the Right Youtube Video
To select the right YouTube video for your PowerPoint presentation, you should ensure it aligns with your topic and engages your audience. Start by brainstorming keywords related to your topic and use them to search for relevant videos on YouTube.
Consider the length of the video and whether it fits within the allotted time for your presentation. Watch the video in its entirety to make sure it delivers the message you want to convey. Pay attention to the visual and audio quality, as well as the overall production value. Additionally, check if the video has any copyright restrictions or if it requires attribution.
Lastly, consider the audience’s preferences and interests to choose a video that will captivate and resonate with them.
Finding the Embed Code on Youtube
Once you’re on the YouTube video page, you can easily locate the embed code.
Scroll down the page until you see the ‘Share’ button below the video.
Click on it, and a menu will appear with various sharing options.
Look for the option that says ‘Embed.’
Click on it, and a box will appear with the embed code.
You can customize the size and other settings of the embedded video by clicking on the ‘Show More’ button below the embed code box.
Once you have customized the settings, simply copy the embed code by clicking on the ‘Copy’ button next to the code.
Now, you’re ready to go and can paste the embed code into your PowerPoint presentation.
Inserting the Embed Code in Powerpoint
When inserting the code, make sure to adjust the size and other settings to fit your presentation.
To insert the embed code in PowerPoint, follow these steps:
- Open your PowerPoint presentation and navigate to the slide where you want to insert the YouTube video.
- Click on the ‘Insert’ tab in the top menu.
- Choose ‘Video’ from the ‘Media’ section.
- A drop-down menu will appear. Select ‘Online Video.’
- In the ‘From a Video Embed Code’ box, paste the embed code you obtained from YouTube.
- Click on the ‘Insert’ button.
- The YouTube video will now be embedded in your PowerPoint slide.
- To adjust the size and other settings, click on the video, and handles will appear. You can drag these handles to resize the video or use the ‘Format’ tab to customize the settings further.
Remember to test your presentation to ensure the YouTube video plays smoothly.
Adjusting the Size and Position of the Video
To resize and reposition the embedded video, simply click on it and use the handles to adjust its size and position.
PowerPoint gives you the freedom to customize the video according to your presentation needs. Maybe you want the video to be larger and centered on the slide, or perhaps you want it to be smaller and aligned to the right. Whatever your preference, it’s easy to do.
Just click on the video once to select it, and you’ll notice small squares or circles, called handles, appear around the edges. By clicking and dragging these handles, you can resize the video to your desired dimensions.
To reposition the video, click on it and drag it to a new location on the slide. PowerPoint provides you with the tools to make your embedded video fit perfectly into your presentation.
Playing the Youtube Video in Powerpoint

Once you have the URL of the video you want to include in your presentation, open PowerPoint and navigate to the slide where you want the video to appear.
Click on the ‘Insert’ tab at the top of the screen and select ‘Video’ from the toolbar. From the drop-down menu, choose ‘Online Video’.
A window will open where you can paste the URL of the YouTube video. After pasting the URL, click ‘Insert’ and the video will be embedded into your PowerPoint slide.
