Embed YOUTube in PowerPoint 2010 give 'cannot embed...' ERROR

Embedding a YOUTube video in Powerpoint 2010 gives error: 'Powerpoint cannot insert a video from this embed code.Verify that the embed code is correct, and then try again'

 

<object width="1280" height="720"><param name="movie" value="//www.youtube.com/v/McklXqQlwQk?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/McklXqQlwQk?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="1280" height="720" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

 

I've tried changing the 'version=' number -and even deleting it out all together, and nothing works.

 

Thnx for your help!  Doug

Answer
Apart from the problems with You tube in PowerPoint that embed code is not correct

Try this:

<object width="1280" height="720"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/McklXqQlwQk?version=2&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/McklXqQlwQk?version=2&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="1280" height="720" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

It's a large video so it will take a while to embed and play
