SlideShare takes over YouTube

January 20, 2009

Well, kind of. Many presentations have video in them. Some presentations are shared as video. Sometimes there is a demo that you might want to embed into your presentation. Sometimes its a movie clip.

Starting today you can embed YouTube videos into SlideShare! Yes, its really easy. After uploading your video, go to "Edit" and choose the Edit YouTube video tab. Choose the slide and paste the embed code for the video. We will add a slide in that spot with the video embedded.

You can embed multiple videos into the slide. But please be gentle. This is in Beta.

What can you do with it.
- Add a movie clip into your presentation to illustrate a point
- Create a presentation which is compilation of multiple videos (maybe its the talks from five speakers at a conference)
- Just embed a talk. If you have a video talk and want to share on SlideShare, just embed a slide.
