Can not insert video from web in powerpoint 2010

Running a windows 7 32 bit machine. I still can't get the option of video from web.
I have flash player 11+ and office 32 bit home and business and also latest version of media player.

I simply do not get the option under insert>Video
I only get this..

Have a read at our page here

It explains the problem. The free AddIn will no longer allow you to fix the embed code (or at least there's nowhere to put it - thanks MSFT) but the Old Style Insert may still work.

I have Office 2013 (and 2007...skipped 2010), but maybe the issue is the same in 2010. Look in the Trust Center (in PowerPoint Options), then click the Trust Center Settings button, and see if you have an option that says something like "Allow Office to connect to the Internet" in Privacy Settings. Here's what it looks like in 2013:
Allow Office to connect to the InternetIf that is unchecked, it may be the reason that you don't have the [Video from Web Site] option. And if that setting is not the culprit, take a spin through all of the other Trust Center Settings...could be some other setting in there that is causing the problem. Regards, Joe
Google has changed the underlying code for doing this with YouTube, even if you use the old embed code and tick all kinds of boxes, so I imagine you won't be able to get it to work. In fact, MSFT actually removed this feature altogether from PPT 2013 in a recent update. Looks like they removed it from 2010 also.

Suggest you use something like Shyam Pillai's LiveWeb or YTV add-in to do the needful.
