You no longer need to download videos onto your computer first, and then insert them to your PowerPoint.

To embed a video from online site like YouTube, click on the Insert tab in PowerPoint 2010. And then choose Video. Finally, select Video from Online Video Site.
After that, you will be able to see a dialogue box pops up which requires you to copy the embed code from the site and paste it into it.
