Canva Presentation Tutorial: How to upload a YouTube Video into a Slide

During this Canva presentation tutorial I’ll show you how to upload a YouTube video into a slide.

I’ll then show you how to download your completed presentation as a raw file, as a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation or how to present your slides as a show directly from Canva.

Today I’m going to show you how to upload YouTube videos directly into Canva presentations.

1. First open Canva and select a presentation template. Now search YouTube on the left hand side of your Canva desktop. You’ll see some suggested videos appear but to find your own YouTube channel just type in your channel name in the search box.

2. Double-click on the image of the video you want to add to your slide. You can adjust the size of the video image by pulling the corner buttons.

3. To start playing the video within your slide just select the image by clicking it once; you’ll see that the YouTube logo at the centre turns red.

4. Once you’ve finished creating your presentation save your file in case you need to go back and make some edits.

Once that’s done you can:-

✽ download the file as it is
✽ download it into a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation
✽ or present your slides direct from Canva.

I love the latter idea, it’s sleek and professional!
