How to Insert Videos in Google Slides

Embed a Video in Google Slides

You can insert videos in your presentations to add a little flair and emphasize your point. Just make sure to keep the videos short, so that they don't become the main event.

Insert a Video

Videos that are inserted from a file are embedded directly into the Slides presentation, so the presentation file size will increase when videos are inserted.

  1. Select the slide you want to add a video to.
  2. Click Insert on the menu bar.
  3. Select Video.
    Insert a Video

    The Insert video dialog box opens, giving you a few ways to add a video to your presentation.

    If you want to search YouTube for a video, you can do that here. Otherwise, you can paste the URL of a specific YouTube video, or insert a video that you have saved to your Google Drive.

  4. Specify the video's web or Google Drive location.
  5. Click Select.
    Insert a Video

The video is inserted and can be resized and moved around just like any other object.

Format Video Options

There are a few playback options that let you change how the video will play during the presentation.

  1. Select a video.
  2. Click the Format options button on the toolbar.
