It appears that this is one area where the Mac version of Word is different from the Windows version of Word. I found this answer in Microsoft's support forums:  how to insert youtube videos into word Office 2016 for mac. you can do - Microsoft Community 

The question was

how to insert youtube videos into word Office 2016 for mac. you can do it on Windows but why can't you insert a video on the mac version

The answer was

Sorry, that's the way they made it.

Word 2016 for Mac does not have that function. It can embed only videos/audio that are saved locally to your computer.

There's no work-around.
