    There are two ways to do this. One requires the computer you are presenting on to have an internet connection and the other does not. Both methods are for PowerPoint 2007.

    If you will be presenting on a computer WITH Internet, the following step by step tutorial with pictures will tell you how to easily insert YouTube videos without having to download anything:

    The second option is for presenting from a computer withOUT internet:

    1. Find the YouTube video you would like to insert into your PowerPoint presentation.

    2. Copy the URL for the video.

    3. Navigate to (there are other free media converters, but I've tried and had success with this one) and click Enter a link.

    4. Paste in the URL for the YouTube video and click OK.

    5. Click Go to the next step.

    6. Select an output file type (choose either avi or wmv) and click OK.

    7. Click Start to begin the conversion.

    8. When finished, click Download and save the file to your desired location.

    9. In PowerPoint, select the slide on which you would like to insert the video.

    10. On the Insert tab choose Movie > Movie from File.

    11. Navigate to where you have saved the downloaded video and click OK.

    12. When asked how you would like the movie to start in PowerPoint, click When Clicked (unless you would like the video to begin playing automatically).

    13. Move and resize the inserted video as desired.

    14. When you view your slide show, click the video to play it.

    Click the video again to pause or stop it.

    Method A:(Play the PowerPoint offline)

    1.Download Youtube video with the free software Leawo Free Video Accelerator ( )

    2.Then convert the Youtube video to .AVI format with

    Leawo Free FLV Converter ( )

    3.Insert the avi video into PowerPoint

    Step 1: On the Insert tab, point to Movies and Sounds, and then click Movie from File.

    Step 2: Click the video you want to use and then click OK.

    Step 3: After you click OK, you' are promoted with a message asking how you want the movie to start in the slide show. I recommend you choosing "Automatically "even if you want the movie to play when clicked. And that's done.


    1. This is the easiest way to insert a video.

    2. Only video in formats of AVI, MPEG and WMV can be inserted in this way

    3. Always put the movie in the same folder as your PowerPoint presentation.If you later move the PowerPoint presentation to another computer, copy the movie too. Keeping your movie in the same folder as your presentation ensures the link will still work. However, you should always test the movie on a new machine just to be certain. Re-insert the movie, if necessary.

    Method B:(Play the PowerPoint online)

    You need four steps to make it:

    Step 1: Get URL of the video

    Step 2: Insert the ActiveX Control Shockwave Flash Object to your PowerPoint

    Step 3: Add the the video link to your PowerPoint

    Step 4: Fine tune the video in your PowerPoint file

    To include a movie or video clip in a PowerPoint presentation, you simply click 'Insert', click on 'movies and sounds', then click 'movie from file'.

    Keep in mind that PowerPoint only recognizes MP3, AVI and few other file formats so if you cannot add a video because it is FLV or some other unrecognized media type, then you simply download a video format converter, to convert the file to a recognized format.
