How Do I Add a Video to My Canva Presentation?

Adding a video to your Canva presentation is an excellent way to engage your audience and take your presentation to the next level. By bringing life to your slides, videos can help you to grab the attention of your viewers and keep them engaged throughout the presentation.

Canva makes it easy for you to add videos to your presentations. All you need is a link or URL for the video and you’re ready to go.

The video library in Canva includes plenty of options from YouTube, Vimeo, and other popular video sites.

First, open up the Canva presentation editor and select the slide where you want to add the video. Then click on “Add Media” in the top right corner of the screen and select “Video” from the drop-down menu.

Once you’ve selected Video, a window will appear with all of the options available in Canva’s library. If you already have a link or URL for a specific video that you want to use, enter it into the search bar at the top of this window. You can also browse through all of the available videos by category if you don’t have a specific one in mind.

Once you’ve found a suitable video, click on it and then select “Add Video” in order to add it to your presentation. To make sure that it fits perfectly into your design, use Canva’s drag-and-drop editor tools to adjust its size and position on your slide. You can also add text or other graphic elements around it if needed. When everything looks just right, click “Save & Close” at the bottom of your screen.

Adding videos to your Canva presentations is an easy process that can help bring life and energy into any presentation. With just a few clicks of your mouse, you can take any ordinary presentation from dull and boring to captivating.


By following these simple steps, adding videos to your Canva presentations is quick and easy! With access to an extensive library of videos as well as options for uploading custom videos, there are plenty of great ways for you to bring life into any presentation.
