Insert online videos into OneNote 2016 for Windows

OneNote 2016 now has the ability to embed videos right into a page. Adding videos makes organizing your notebooks even better, and is great if you're creating interactive notebooks to share with others. You can embed videos from a variety of sources, with more options on the way.

To add a video in OneNote, do the following:

  1. Copy the video link from your video source.

  2. On the page where you'd like to add the video, click Insert > Online Video.
