    POwerpoint does not support flash

    you can download youtube videos from Firefox if you have the Fast Video Download extension installed.

    FRom there you can use isquint to convert the video to an AVI movoe that Powerpoint can read, I have found that an AVI encoded with the Cinepac codec works well on Powerpoint
