Embedding Videos in PowerPoint

There are two ways in embed videos in PowerPoint. When you have a copy of the video on your computer, you can simply insert it onto a page. To do this, choose the Insert tab; then Movie > Movie from File. You will be given the option to have it play automatically when you get to that page, or to start it by clicking on it. That's all you have to do for this option.

You can also embed videos from the web such as YouTube videos. This process is described in the video below. Keep in mind that in order for embedded web videos to work during your presentation, you must have an active internet connection during the presentation.
