embedding video link from YouTube


We are having trouble with the embed code from YouTube for a video we want to insert into a slide. When we paste the embed code into the insert video from website box we get  a pop up saying ...

! A video cannot be inserted from this embed code.

Verify that the embed code is correct and then try again

We have tried using embed codes from different videos in case there was a problem with that particular code but same message each time

Any ideas??
