Download YouTube Videos to Use in PowerPoint Presentations

Convert YouTube videos to MP4 format for PowerPoint presentations

While it is faster to embed a YouTube video to play in your PowerPoint presentation, the downside of this is that you must have a live internet connection for the YouTube video to play. Rather than depend on this outside variable that may or may not work for you when it is your time in the spotlight, it is better to insert the YouTube video right into your PowerPoint presentation. No internet connection needed.
