None of the information in that article addresses the problem. The article itself claims "Acrobat Pro supports .mp3, .mov, and other files encoded in H.264 (with AAC audio)." but when you attempt to embed a H.264 .MP4 into a pdf document it still trys to embed the SWF player file.  Since Flash is EOL this doesn't function. Considering it was published in Nov 2020 well after the announcement of EOL for Flash, and the continued claim that embedded video is supported, I would also like to know what a workable solution is. 

 

Thanks,

Z
