Add YouTube videos to PowerPoint

“How can I add a YouTube video to my PowerPoint presentation?”
PowerPoint supports adding many different types of movies, including AVI, MPEG, and Windows Media. YouTube videos, which are Flash FLV files, aren’t directly supported. There are a couple of ways you can add a YouTube video to your PowerPoint slides. One way involves download a YouTube video and then converting the video to one of the formats supported by PowerPoint. If you know you’ll be presenting somewhere with an Internet connection, you can embed the YouTube video in your PowerPoint slide following this slightly complicated series of steps.

How to Delete Recent Documents List in Office 2007

“How can I clear the list of recent documents in my PowerPoint 2007 and Excel 2007?”
The process for clearing recent documents in Word 2007, Excel 2007, and PowerPoint 2007 remains very similar to the way it was done in Microsoft Office 2003 – the location of the menu item is merely different. With PowerPoint 2007 open, click on the Office icon at the top left of the screen, and then click on PowerPoint Options.

Swiff Point Player

Adding a Flash movie to a PowerPoint presentation typically requires some custom VB scripting in order to successfully control playback during a slideshow. Swiff Point Player makes the process easier for SWF files, adding a custom button the Insert menu in PowerPoint to automatically add any SWF file to your PowerPoint presentation. Using Swiff Point Player, you get seamless Flash playback in your PowerPoint slides, similar to what you get with other standard video formats like AVI or WMV. If you need to playback an FLV file, like the ones served on YouTube, you’ll still need to convert the file or get some custom programming done, but if you want to add some eye-popping SWF graphics or a SWF movie to a presentation, Swiff Point Player has you covered. It should go without saying that PowerPoint is required. [Windows 2k/XP $0.00]
