Insert Google Drive videos into Google Slides

Google Slides just got a little more awesome today. Only being able to insert YouTube videos into Google Slides is obviously a problem for many schools. You can now insert a video from Google Drive into Google Slides.

Short Clips

You should NOT embed a super long video into a presentation. I usually go for seconds. Like 4 seconds to maybe 30. It better be dang entertaining to push a minute. Inserting YouTube videos inserts the WHOLE videos. Inserting a video from Google Slides will allow you to choose the start and end time.

  1. Our school district has blocked YouTube videos for the elementary grades and I was looking for a work around. I wish this embed feature would block the source of the video so that students could watch the video if it was assigned by the teacher in classroom or on a slide/doc. As it stands right now the minute the device recognizes that a student is trying to watch an assigned YouTube video it will not play. Is there a workaround for this problem for schools?
