Copy link to clipboard



I am working on a beamer presentation. In one of the frames i need to insert an MP4 video. I tried using the package movie15. I open this pdf in Adobe reader Version 2022.003.20310 and try to run the embedded video, however i keep getting this message "Acrobat has encountered an error while playing this media clip:" and couldn't run the video. However, in foxit Reader the embedded video runs so well, and even i have another version of adobe reader (Version 2022.003.20263) on another laptop, the video run so well there. I am curious to know how can i fix this issue on my current laptop, and know what is the reason of the current issue.

Below the code for the added embedded video:


Thank you in advance for your help!
