Tech Tip: Set Start and End Times for YouTube Videos in Slides

You may already know how to embed a YouTube video into a Google Slide by using Insert → Video.

But what if I told you that you could choose the start and end points of the video, so viewers see only the portion of the video you want?!

After inserting your video into the Slide:
  1. Click the video.
  2. Click Format Options in the menu bar above.
  3. Set the Start, End, and Autoplay options on the right.
  4. Play in Presentation Mode to see it in action!

Keep in mind, if you share the Slides to someone, they can still open the video in YouTube and click around to watch the entire video if they want. But to display just a clip to your audience, this is a solid strategy!


Happy Video Clipping!
