Yes, you can insert a YouTube video into Google Docs files. But, don’t expect to make an easy to use, engaging, and compelling tool out of it. When it comes to making presentations, websites, and even PDFs, Google Docs isn’t far behind. As a matter of fact, it is actually more advanced than PowerPoint. It is the software of choice for both the home user and the professional. And if you are going to use the video as part of your presentation, you will want to know what steps you need to follow to make this process as simple and as effective as possible.
The first thing that you need to do in order to begin embedding video into Google Docs files is to select the file that you would like to convert to a Google Doc. Once you have chosen the file, click the small “Browser” icon at the top right of the screen. This will open a new browser window, similar to the one you would see if you visited the official Google website.
In the browser, go to “Movie” on the left hand side and then “Eject Items.” If there are any files that are in the middle of your document that you are trying to remove, simply click on the plus sign icon to the left of the file and it will remove them. You can also drag and drop items onto the plus sign if necessary. To insert a video into a Google Doc, simply click “apseirable.” This will open a new dialogue box where you can insert a video.
The next step is to select the type of video that you want to use with Google Docs. If you are converting a PowerPoint presentation, simply select “PowerPoint” from the file menu. If you are simply converting a series of individual videos, simply choose the individual videos that you want to use. The other option is to select the entire folder, which will allow you to find and add files and folders. You may find that you need to learn how to navigate the top menu prior to trying to insert a video.
After you have selected a video and uploaded it to your Google Docs account, you may find that you need to save the file to a specific location in order to access the video file. To do this, click “bsite” and then “drive folder.” This will open a new dialog box with a destination folder name. Click “drive folder” and then drag and drop the video onto the folder.
When you are working with Google Docs, you will notice that it includes a feature called Smartypast. Smartypast allows you to run many copies of a document, even if they are saved on different devices. To embed video into a Google Doc, first, visit the Smartypast website and follow the on-screen instructions. Once you have followed these steps, you will be prompted to insert a video file. Simply click the play button and then choose the size and duration that you want to share.
To embed video into a presentation, simply click on the play icon and then choose the new presentation that you want to create. Then, click the “Slide” icon next to the play icon. You will then see a new slide layout containing your original video file. You can then select “Play With” next to the slide and then drag and drop the video onto the new slide.
The last way that you can insert a video into Google Docs is by selecting the “Screenshots” icon at the bottom of any presentation or document. Simply click on this icon and you will see a page that displays a snapshot of the document or presentation that you want to share. If you are unable to upload a video, it will automatically start recording. Just wait until the video finishes loading and then you can take a screenshot of your document. If you want to preview the screenshots before you take them, you can simply click on the screen shot and upload the picture.
