Problems embedding Youtube clips into Powerpoint
I have a member of staff that has been using the Powerpoint 2010 feature of embedding web video (youtube in this instance) directly into Powerpoint. I'm told until recently this worked fine, but now when you try and play the embedded clip a popup appears from Windows Media Player that says "To play the selected item, you must install a later version of Adobe Flash Player".
What I've tried (all with same Youtube clip);
- You use the Youtube embed code with Powerpoint, so I saved that code locally and opened it in a browser to test the embed code, and that worked fine
- In Media Player I went to Open URL and pasted the Youtube URL and it worked.
- In Powerpoint, using "Link to a video file on a web site", copy the same embed code in and it just adds a black box to powerpoint, which gives the error above when you try and play it.
So given that the embed code is fine, and Media Player can play the Youtube flash fine... I'm at a loss as to the solution. We're running Windows 7 x86, latest Adobe Flash Player.
Any tips would be gratefully received.
