Ok, let's get straight to the topic: Embedding YouTube video to PPT. Of course, PowerPoint allows you to directly insert online videos. But it's very slow and the videos are probably incompatible with PPT. So my suggestion is to download YouTube to PPT compatible formats first. Now, I'll show you how to do it in two parts.
Part 1: How to download YouTube to PPT supported format
Part 2: How to insert YouTube videos into PPT
Most YouTube videos are FLV files. However, FLV can't be accepted by PPT.

That's AllMyTube (AllMyTube for Mac ). In fact, this app can help you download and convert YouTube to AVI just in two simple steps. Also, converting local YouTube to AVI is supported here. Below is how.

Now, you can start to insert the YouTube videos stored on your computer into PPT. Next, I'll explain the operation on basis of different situations.
For Microsoft PowerPoint 2010
Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 was developed to be powerful enough to handle all kinds of videos. It allows you freely to insert videos to PowerPoint from your local hard drive as well as video sharing sites, including YouTube. Inserting YouTube video into PowerPoint is pretty simple. Here's the method.
Find the slide you want to insert YouTube. Then go to Insert>Video from Online Video Site…
At that moment, a pop-up dialogue box called Video from Online Video Site will ask you to add YouTube embed code. So you need to go to the YouTube video, copy YouTube embed code and paste it here. Then click Insert. When you've successfully added YouTube Video to the slide, a black frame will appear on the slide.
That's exactly where the YouTube video is. It doesn't look great. However, when you play the PowerPoint slides, it will play automatically.
For Microsoft PowerPoint 2007&2003
Microsoft PowerPoint 2007&2003 do not have the functionality in dealing with online video as Microsoft PowerPoint 2010.But it doesn't affect you to inserting YouTube Videos to the PowerPoint. The best and most efficient way could be using YouTube plug-in. Like plug-ins for web browser, you have them installed there and whenever you need them, just click on. Here you need YouTube Video Wizard.
Download YouTube Wizard from http://skp.mvps.org/youtube.htm. Take care! YouTube Wizard has versions for PowerPoint 2003 or PowerPoint 2007 respectively. After you download it, extract the zip to a folder and install the plug-in to your PowerPoint.
