This is nothing new but I keep getting asked this so thought I would provide this brief summary:

The following technique embeds the video – i.e. it streams it direct from YouTube to the rectangular area you define on a slide, so an internet connection is needed during the presentation.

Just watch this YouTube video to find out how – its a bit fiddly and technical, but not difficult.

It is of course also possible to download and save videos from YouTube and then add those to a slide – but although this may seem simpler it raises all kinds of awkward copyright issues for tutors (i.e. it is illegal). If you want to do this, you’ll have to Google the answer yourself!
