Error message pops up when trying to add a You Tube video to PowerPoint 2010: “PowerPoint cannot insert a video from this embed code. Verify that the embed code is correct, and then try again”.
I inserted the following code:
<object width="1280" height="720"><param name="movie" value="//www.youtube.com/v/McklXqQlwQk?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/McklXqQlwQk?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="1280" height="720" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>
But after i tried changing the code ‘version=number’ or even removing it, the problem is still there.

Can anyone help? Thanks a lot!

I suppose you should type in this:
<object width="1280" height="720"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/McklXqQlwQk?version=2&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/McklXqQlwQk?version=2&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="1280" height="720" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

By the way, you have to be patient enough to wait for the long term insertion. For this is a big file.
Hope I’ve helped you!

This works in my Office 2010

<object width="560" height="315"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/oBaNLOZTz4o?version=2&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/oBaNLOZTz4o?version=2&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

But won’t work in Office 2013 version. Strange!
