How to embed a YouTube video into a PowerPoint presentation, depending on the version of your PowerPoint

You can embed YouTube videos in a PowerPoint presentation using the Video button in the Insert tab of the program’s ribbon. 
The embedding process is slightly different depending on which version of PowerPoint you have.
For the latest version of PowerPoint, you need the YouTube video’s URL. For older versions, you need to copy the “iframe” embed code.

Visually enriching a PowerPoint slideshow with charts, images, and video can make any presentation more engaging. 
You can embed a locally stored video file in PowerPoint, but that makes the PowerPoint file very large and can cause performance problems. A much better approach: Embed a link to a YouTube video instead. 
The exact process depends on which version of PowerPoint you have. 
How to embed a YouTube video in PowerPoint 365
1. Find the video you want to embed on YouTube, and copy the entire URL from the web browser’s address bar. 

2. In PowerPoint, click the “Insert” tab in the ribbon at the top of the screen.
3. Click “Video,” and in the drop-down, choose “Online video…”

4. In the Online Video dialog box, paste the URL of the YouTube video.

You can apply a variety of effects to the video preview using the options in the Video Format tab in the ribbon. These options affect the video preview that appears in your slide before the video plays — they do not affect the video when it plays.
