Video: Inserting online video

Considering the shift towards cloud computing that we're seeing here with the Microsoft Office Suite 2013, this new feature in Word makes perfect sense and that is inserting video that exists online, directly into your document and even accessing that video to watch it without leaving Microsoft Word. That's exactly what we're going to do with this document called No Obstacles Media Campaign. With that open, you'll notice on the first page a couple of the images; one including a ride by, by this bicyclist. We'll click that image and hit Delete on the keyboard to remove it.

Inserting online video

Considering the shift towards cloud computing that we're seeing here with the Microsoft Office Suite 2013, this new feature in Word makes perfect sense and that is inserting video that exists online, directly into your document and even accessing that video to watch it without leaving Microsoft Word. That's exactly what we're going to do with this document called No Obstacles Media Campaign. With that open, you'll notice on the first page a couple of the images; one including a ride by, by this bicyclist. We'll click that image and hit Delete on the keyboard to remove it.

We'll replace it with an online video, an online video that exists in YouTube, one of the options for inserting online video. To insert it, we go to the Insert tab and make sure that's selected and on the ribbon, we'll move around the middle to the Online Video button, give it a click, and a dialog box opens up with a few different options. Now, if you wanted to just search for video, you could do so using Bing, add your keywords in the Search field and hit Enter. Or you could go directly to searching YouTube for the video if you know it's there.

And you might even have an Embed Code that you can paste, paste it right in there and wherever it exists online, you'll be able to view it in your Word Document when it's inserted. Let's go to YouTube because I do have one sitting in YouTube for you to work with. We'll add some keywords here. Let's type in rideby, all one word, leave a space, we'll add another keyword, how about b-roll, leave a space, and we'll add lynda.com here as well. Hit Enter on your keyboard, search happens; notice that there is one result here from YouTube and as we hover over it, we see it's our b-roll rideby. Perfect.

We'll click it to select it. Once selected, we can now go to the insert button and give that a click and it's inserted into our document, not in the perfect place, maybe not the perfect size, but we can adjust all of that now. Notice that it is selected. We see handles all the way around the outside, which means we can do things like resize it. Let's go to the bottom right corner. When you see the double diagonal arrow, click and drag to adjust the size. Now, as soon as you get to a certain point, it might look like it's disappearing, but just move up and you can see it's actually fitting into that empty space now.

I'm going to size this one down a little bit more, just a bit. And the other thing that's happening is, it's being positioned for us and that's based on, as we move over to our Layout icon here to see the Layout Options, give that a click, you can see it's actually In Line with Text and that is a default, meaning, it's being treated like any other character you might type in your document. So as you add text, it's going to move around. As you add paragraphs, it's going to be pushed down. We can change that. Let's change it so that the text is going to wrap around it at the top and bottom.

That's this option down here, Top and Bottom, give it a click. And now text will never appear on either side of our video. It's actually just going to appear above or below. Now, let's move it. We'll go right into the middle here, click and drag with the four sided arrow and we'll try to align it around the center. Notice when you get to the center, there is this Alignment Guide that shows up and we'll be talking more about these a little bit later on. We'll let go, and now it's positioned perfectly. Now of course the other neat thing is we don't have to go to YouTube to view this video.

We can view it directly in our document. There is a play button right here. When we give it a click, look what happens, a window opens up and we'll be watching our video momentarily. Click Play, click Pause. You could continue to watch the entire video directly from YouTube and when you're done all you need to do is just click anywhere outside that video and you're back to your document with a reference to that YouTube video sitting right there on the page.

That's a brand new feature here in Word 2013, one that's going to save you some time, a convenient way to insert video that already exists online.
