Hello, I am using following version.

Add-in express : 8.7.4430.0
VSTO : 15.0.0.0

I want to add youtube video, flash , html in PowerPoint slide using Add-in Express.

Here is part of the source code.
<Youtube Vidoe Insert code>

const string embeddedTag = @"<object><param name='movie' value='http://www.youtube.com/v/Jfa1eAHr4Ks&amp;version=2'></object>";
PowerPoint.Shape youtubeShape = activeSlide.Shapes.AddMediaObjectFromEmbedTag(embeddedTag, 5, 5, 400, 500);

<flash Insert code>

const string swfurl = "http://teacher.i-scream.co.kr/files/contents/1036/01/swf/1036_01_101_01.swf";
shape = shapes.AddMediaObject2(swfurl, Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoTrue, Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoTrue,
10, 10, 300, 300);

But,No action is performed when I click the button.
What is the problem?

Hello jaesung,

The VBA macro below works for me:

Sub InsertYoutubeVideo()
    ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes.AddMediaObjectFromEmbedTag EmbedTag:= _
    "<object width=""560"" height=""315"">" & _
    "<param name=""movie"" value=""http://www.youtube.com/v/Jfa1eAHr4Ks?version=3&amp;hl=en_US""></param>" & _
    "<param name=""allowFullScreen"" value=""true""></param>" & _
    "<param name=""allowscriptaccess"" value=""always""></param>" & _
    "<embed src=""http://www.youtube.com/v/Jfa1eAHr4Ks?version=3&amp;hl=en_US"" " & _
    "type=""application/x-shockwave-flash"" width=""560"" height=""315"" " & _
    "allowscriptaccess=""always"" allowfullscreen=""true""></embed></object>"
End Sub


As to the second example, at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3050735/power-point-2010-youtube-embeding-problem, they suggest that the issue may relate to bitness of Flash. Check if this is the case.
