[Tutorial] How To Insert YouTube Videos Inside PowerPoint 2013 Presentations

Today’s presentations are expected to contain as much interactive content as possible, and videos are certainly something we can not avoid. Adding videos inside your presentation will certainly make people more interested in what you are presenting. However, videos can sometimes be too large (especially if they are of HD quality) and keeping them stored on your flash drive will take too much space. That’s why adding videos from external sources such as internet, more specifically from YouTube, is a phenomenal solution; in this tutorial I will show you the procedure.
