I've read all the articles about this problem.  My question is "we have Powerpoint 2013.  If I install it, will the problem be resolved?"

Only solution I know is to download and convert the videos and insert them into your presentation. KeepVid is a popular d/l-converter as is YTD.

I believe the feature was removed because Google changed the YouTube embed code again, which broke the feature.

You said  you read all the articles, Did you read JSRWilson's page about it? http://www.pptalchemy.co.uk/PowerPoint_Flash_Player_Version.html Uninstalling the described Kb might be worth a try, and if that doesn't work there's a link on that page that gives you a manual method.  You can also check Shyam Pillai's Live Web add-in. http://skp.mvps.org/liveweb.htm#.UoWGbZ0o6Uk

No, this feature is no longer supported.
The only way to insert video is to download, and convert, and insert ...

All attempts to use old embed code were failed.
