Click on the circular icon in the upper left hand corner. Go to PowerPoint "options". Check the box for "Show Developer Tab in the Ribbon". Next, go to the YouTube video that you would like to use, in your Internet browser. When you have your video, copy the URL. Go to your developer tab in PowerPoint. Click on the icon that looks like a hammer and a wrench. Scroll down to "Shock Wave Flash Object". Click "OK". Draw your object. Next, select properties on the ribbon. Paste the URL, from YouTube, in the properties box. Delete the "watch". Delete the equals sign. Replace it with a slash: "/". Exit properties. The video will not be shown until you do your presentation.
