Assume you’re making a PowerPoint presentation for the class next week, you may need to insert some video clips to demonstrate your point. And YouTube is the most ideal place for you to find the video materials you need. You don’t have to worry about the resources for everyday millions of people are uploading videos, some of them are self-made, to YouTube to share with people around the world. The only problem is that YouTube doesn’t allow people to freely download these videos. So if you want to add YouTube video to your PowerPoint, some tools are needed, fortunately, they are free tools.
Before we start, we need to be clear about the following. Currently the 3 most common video formats of YouTube video are MP4, FLV and WebM, and none of them are supported by PowerPoint. Only in PowerPoint 2010 can you add MP4 video. The precondition is that you have QuickTime Player installed on your computer. PowerPoint do support many video formats, but it will never be wrong to use AVI and WMV video format, because both are created by Microsoft itself.
So now we have divided the YouTube video to PowerPoint process into 3 parts: download YouTube video, convert YouTube video to AVI or WMV, and insert YouTube video to PowerPoint.
