Inserting an online video into a OneNote notebook is more than just copying the web link and pasting it into the notebook page. In this video, learn how to insert an online video so that the video is embedded within the page and can be played online with associated notes. OneNote supports many types of online videos including Office Mix, Office Sway, Vine, Vimeo, YouTube and Dailymotion.
- [Narrator] When an image, photo, or screenshot is added to a Notebook page, you can view the content. When an online video link is pasted into the page, all you can see is the link. Notice here that that's what we're viewing within the Online Videos page. But wouldn't it be great if we have some notes that relate to a video to actually embed and be able to view that video right along with those notes without having to switch from the OneNote page? Well, you can do that now in OneNote 2016, and I'm going to show you how. The first thing we need to do is switch from the Home ribbon over to the Insert tabbed ribbon.
What we're looking for is a group called Media. It's going to be just to the right of the Images group. Now, if you're not seeing the Media group with the Online Video command as we see it here, it may be the way that Office has been installed on your computer, so you might want to check with your IT department. Now, to get started, we'll go ahead and select Online Video. By doing this, a menu appears where we're able to type in or paste in the video address from the online location where it resides. Now, you might be asking, what video types does OneNote 2016 support? It supports many, including Office Mix, Sway, Vine, Vimeo, YouTube, and Daily Motion.
Now, I already have the link that you see on the screen copied to my clipboard, so I'm going to go ahead and paste that into the Video address field. I'm going to click OK, and here's the video within a container that's now been embedded on the online video page. And notice that it actually has the title of the video, who the video is by, and below the container space where we can actually playback that video is the link to the source of where we got this video from. Now, I'm going to go ahead and play the video, but before I do that, I might actually want to take a look at the controls just a bit.
- [Narrator] You work hard and play harder, water can't give you back what you lose, H-Plus-- - [Narrator] Now that I've pressed play, you can see that we have the controls at the bottom of this. I can control the audio if I need to, I can even see information like closed caption. Maybe some of the settings that I'd like to change with this, or go out and view this within YouTube. If I need to make this larger screen, I have that capability too. Some of the functionality that you see here that's included since this is a YouTube video may not actually work properly as it's embedded within the OneNote page.
With a couple clicks and entering the video link, you have a video that plays in line with the related notes. I hope this pro tip helps you create dynamic notes with videos.
