Insert online videos in OneNote for Windows 10

Applies to: OneNote for Windows 10.

Inserting videos to your notes is a good way to design interactive notebooks that you can share with or distribute to anyone. You can embed videos from a wide range of sources, with more options coming soon.

Do the following:

  1. Copy any video link from your favourite video source (for example, open a video on YouTube and then copy its URL from your browser’s Address bar by pressing Ctrl+C).
  1. In OneNote, find your sought page to embed the video.
  1. Press anywhere on the page, and then press Ctrl+V to paste the link. Now you can either select the link to play the video directly at its original location, or press the embedded video to watch it immediately on the page.

Supported video sites

While you can import links to any video source in OneNote, embedding playable videos on a page presently functions with the following sites and services:

  • Dailymotion
