For those of you who attended the December 9th TechCamp and whose PowerPoint didn't have the Custom button in Properties:
You simply have to input the modified URL (modify like so: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXwB9FlkNXA --> http://www.youtube.com/v/JXwB9FlkNXA) into the field labeled "Movie". Also make sure the field labeled "Embed Movie" has the word "False" in it.
