Getting YouTube video to play automatically and to fill the screenwer

Couple of questions here about using video in PowerPoint presentations...(1) I have added a YouTube video to a presentation to run automatically - when I get to the slide in Slide Show video - I still have to click it - is that correct? (2) how can I get it to fill the screen? At the moment it's sort of landscape (see Slide 2) . If I had this as a Browsed at a Kiosk set up - how would the video work then? Thanks

Unfortunately, you cannot modify playback options for YouTube videos, as far as I have ever seen. If you can download the video to embed it from your computer you will able to accomplish your task

@Karen Falandays - thanks for getting back to me. At least it wasn't something simple I was missing! I presume you mean download the video from YouTube, and then plonk it directly into the presentation? Then you think it should run automatically?

Yes, technically, unless you "own" the YouTube video, you will not have options to modify playback. Most YouTubes are not available for download unless you know the author!

Assuming you can get permission to use the video, you can download it with any of number YouTube video downloading sites

I want to demo the use of video in PowerPoint - both YouTube and "ordinary" video - are there any sites with fairly generic content that I could use? Thanks
