IssuePowerpoint 2010 or 2013 allow you to run a YouTube video from the web, embedded in your slide show presentation. This avoids the need to switch from Powerpoint to your web browser, play the video and switch back. There's a catch however. Recent changes in the embed code that YouTube provides are no longer digestible by the Insert > Video dialog offered by Powerpoint.
- Use the Old Embed Code from YouTube.
- Remove the Version=3 portion of this code (occurs twice in the code) before pasting into the Insert > Video > Online Video textbox. You can edit the code in a text editor like Windows Notepad or Wordpad if you need an editor.
