    Looking for presentation software allowing YouTube embedding

    Currently I'm using MS PowerPoint 2007 to embed YT videos with these steps.

    But it's not very smooth. When you reach the slide, you have to manually click play to play the video, not easy when the computer is at the back of the room and you are using a presenter device at the front.

    Anyone know alternative presentation software where YT videos can be embedded (not downloaded) easily and play automatically when reaching the slide?

    Can you not upgrade to 2010? Or use keepvid.com and insert video file

    This is a great short-term solution. Problem with this is it doesn't resume from the beginning when you go back to the slide containing it. It pauses where it was left. If this can be forced to resume that would be great!

    We have 2010 in some places and it's easier to embed the video, but it still won't autoplay. Haven't tried the above though with this method. Can't use sites like that due to copyright policy here.

    I think it's something to do with the video still being loaded into memory when you leave the page. Perhaps a bit of vb to force a reload of the movie on slide load. I will have a look as it could be handy here.

    Had a go at this but haven't got it working, any VBA experts out there see where I'm going wrong?
    Code:
    Sub OnSlideShowPageChange(ByVal SSW As SlideShowWindow)
        For Each s In ActivePresentation.Slides(SSW.View.CurrentShowPosition).Shapes
            If s.Type = msoOLEControlObject And s.OLEFormat.ProgID Like "ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash.*" Then
                s.OLEFormat.Object.Playing = True
                s.OLEFormat.Object.Rewind
                s.OLEFormat.Object.Play
            End If
        Next
    End Sub
    It may just be that the YouTube AS3 player that gets embeded is a bitch and wont handle rewinds etc. The API documentation is here: https://developers.google.com/youtube/player_parameters
