Selecting the Video Source
You’ll need to choose where you want to get the video from. There are a few options available to you.
The first option is to upload a video directly from your computer. This is a good choice if you already have the video saved on your device. Simply click on the ‘Upload’ button and select the video file from your computer.
The second option is to search for a video on YouTube. Google Slides allows you to directly search for and insert YouTube videos into your presentation. This is a convenient option if you don’t have the video file saved on your computer. Just enter the keywords of the video you want to use and select the appropriate video from the search results.
Obtaining the Video Embed Code
To obtain the embed code, simply navigate to the desired video and click on the share button. Once you have clicked on the share button, a pop-up window will appear with various sharing options. Look for the option that says ‘Embed’ or ‘Embed Code.’ Click on it, and you will be presented with a code snippet that you can copy.
This code contains all the necessary information to embed the video into your Google Slides presentation. Simply copy the code and head over to your Google Slides presentation. In the toolbar, click on ‘Insert’ and then select ‘Video.’ A window will open where you can paste the embed code. Click on ‘Insert’ and voila! Your video is now embedded in your Google Slides.
Inserting the Video in Google Slides
When adding the video to your Google Slides presentation, select the option that allows you to paste the code snippet. This will ensure that the video is embedded seamlessly into your slide.
After selecting the option, you will see a box where you can paste the code snippet that you obtained earlier. Simply copy the code snippet and paste it into the designated box.
Once you have pasted the code, click on the ‘Apply’ or ‘Insert’ button to add the video to your slide. The video will now be embedded and ready to play within your Google Slides presentation.
You can easily resize and reposition the video on your slide to fit your desired layout.
With this simple process, you can enhance your presentation by including engaging videos for your audience to enjoy.
Adjusting Video Settings and Playback Options
Adjusting the settings and playback options for your embedded video is a simple process that allows you to customize your presentation. Once you have inserted the video into your Google Slides presentation, you can easily modify the video’s appearance and behavior.
To adjust the settings, simply click on the video and select the ‘Format options’ tab that appears on the right side of the screen. From there, you can change the video’s size, position, and shape.
Additionally, you can customize the playback options by selecting the ‘Video options’ tab. This allows you to choose whether the video starts automatically, plays in a loop, or is muted.
Presenting the Slideshow With Embedded Video
During the slideshow, you can easily present the embedded video to your audience. Simply click on the slide that contains the video, and the video will start playing automatically. You don’t need to worry about navigating to another window or opening a separate tab.
The video will seamlessly integrate into your presentation, enhancing your message and engaging your audience. As the video plays, you can pause, play, or adjust the volume by using the playback controls that appear on the video itself. This allows you to have complete control over the video’s timing and ensure that it aligns perfectly with your content.
With the ability to present embedded videos in Google Slides, you can deliver a dynamic and interactive presentation that captivates your audience.
So there you have it! Embedding a video in Google Slides is a simple process that can greatly enhance your presentations.
By selecting the video source, obtaining the embed code, inserting the video, and adjusting the settings, you can create a dynamic slideshow that engages your audience.
Don’t forget to test the playback options and practice presenting with the embedded video before your big presentation.
