Embed a video

  1. In Normal view, click the slide in which you want to embed a video.
  2. On the Insert tab, in the Media group, click the arrow under Video, and then click Video from file.
  3. In the Insert Video dialog box, locate and click the video that you want to embed, and then click Insert.
You can also click the Video icon in a content layout to insert a video.

Link to a video

  1. On the Slides tab in Normal view, click the slide to which you want to add a video or animated GIF file.
  2. On the Insert tab, in the Media group, click the arrow under Video.
  3. Click Video from File, locate and click the file that you want to link to.  
  4. On the Insert button, click the down arrow, and then click Link to file
To prevent possible problems with broken links, it is a good idea to copy the videos into the same folder as your presentation, and link to them there.

Insert a video from a web site

  1. On the Slides tab in Normal view, click the slide to which you want to add a video.
  2. In your browser, go to the web site that contains the video that you want to link to, such as YouTube. On the web site, locate the video, and then locate and copy the Embed code.  (Most web sites that contain videos include an embed code; the locations of embed codes will vary depending on the site. (Even though they are called 'embed codes', you are actually linking to the video and not embedding it in your presentation.)
  3. In PowerPoint, on the Insert tab, in the Media group, click the arrow under Video.
  4. Click Video From Web Site
  5. In the Video From Web Site dialog box, paste the embed code, and then click Insert.
