PowerPoint 2013 provides various sources which allow you to insert online video within your slide. We have already covered how to insert video from OneDrive. In this tutorial we'll cover how you can insert video from YouTube. Follow these steps to learn how to use the YouTube option to insert a video within PowerPoint 2013:

  1. Access the Insert tab of the Ribbon, and click the Video button (highlighted in red within Figure 1). And from the resultant drop-down menu choose Online Video option (highlighted in blue within Figure 1).

  3. Type in the keyword(s) within the box placed next to the YouTube option and press the Enter key. We choose "snowflake" as our keyword, shown highlighted in red within Figure 2, above.

  4. Based on the keyword(s) entered, you'll see results in the next window, as shown in Figure 3.

    Options within the search result window are explained below, as marked in Figure 3 above.

    1. Back to Sites: Click this to get back to the Insert Video dialog box (refer to Figure 2, shown earlier in this page).

    2. Video Results: Here you can see the number of search results for the keyword you entered.

    3. Search Bar: The search bar allows you to change or enter more search keywords.

    4. Search Results: Here you can see all the videos that YouTube provides for the keyword(s) you have entered.

    5. Video Source: Here you can see the selected video’s name and source.

    6. Selected Item: Since you can’t select more than one video at a time, here you can always see only ‘1 item selected’.

    Hover your cursor over the video thumbnail to see a magnifying glass icon, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 4.
