I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you click on Insert followed by Video / Video from website and then click the Help and examples link in the window that opens, you will see this content that specifies that YouTube is the only video sharing site that is supported: (I suspect Microsoft couldn't name the button "YouTube" due to copyright issues at that time)

If you can, it would be better to obtain an offline version of the video and embed it directly within your presentation since using this feature is fraught with technical compatibility and security challenges (it also did not work in 2013 when I checked and that specifically offers YouTube, Embed code and Facebook options).

If that's not possible, you could add a hyperlink to the web page itself from your PowerPoint slide, although that's not as clean a solution.

In the case of videos from Vimeo, as most video websites like YouTube or Vimeo convert the videos to FLV (ShockWaveVideo) Microsoft sugests a turnaround using an inserted "shockwave object box" with properties set with the original embed code previously edited... watch it here:

Not exactly the most desired solution but it seems to work.

The old embed code is not available under the share item unless I am missing something. 

I tried this using the url they do have in the embed code and also using just the URL and neither work.  See below.   (used this)" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen (used this)

Jamie I tried the answer you gave with a youtube video using both the old and new embed code and it will not take that either using the process you sent me to.

Here is the link for the you tube video I tried.

This video shows a workaround that did work wiht the youtube videos.  This one is similiar to Miguels solution.  I have a couple of question then will close this.  

If it works on my PC after setting this up will it work on another PC that I have no control over.  How can I verify the flash shockwave player is on that PC?
Miguel MonteiroPresentations Master DesignerCommented:
Embeded videos from websites are only accessed online and use the site's own shockwave player package - as seen in the commands of the embed code.
