    There are some Christmas videos on youtube I would like to place into a PPT 2207 file and wondering how to accomplish it.

    Would like them to play in PPT as full screen if possible.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately it's not as simple as that. Unless you are going to link to the video and play it in a shockwave object (you'll need a live web connection when it plays) then you musyt first download the video as an avi or wmv. There are several sites which claim to do this for you just google Youtube avi download or similar

    I found a way to accomplish the task at hand. First I downloaded an FireFox Extenstion from http://www.downloadhelper.net/ called download helper.
    When viewing a clip on youtube the downloader icon (in the FireFox) tool bar rotates in a group of three colored balls. Click the down arrow and select the clip.
    The save the clip as a “.flv” file, but places it into a file C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\R oaming\Microsoft.
    Next I went to website http://www.tubetillatools.com/ to download a program to convert “.flv to Mped” Converter. Open the converter, find the “.flv”, run the converter.
    The resultant movie clip can then be loaded into PowerPoint 2007.
    On the PowerPoint ribbon go to “Insert” tab, “Media Clips”, “Movie”, “Movie from file…”, and chose your clip. Resize the box to fit your need.
    Works great.

    Thanks for all your help
