Embed video in PDF

I'm trying to embed a video into a PDF (either via InDesign or Acrobat). It will embed, but then there are no controls--once you start the video, you can't stop it. I found someone online with the answer to my exact issue (going into the properties and making sure the skin is set to all controls), but this isn't working for me. I'm not sure if this is due to Flashplayer no longer being supported? Is there anything else I can do so that viewers of my document can start/pause/replay/stop the video embedded in my PDF? I'd really prefer to embed the video instead of linking to YouTube or other online service.

 

Thanks!

I have exactly the same issue, trying to find a solution too.

The Acrobat documentation is not helping at all either.

Embed the video file as an attachment in the PDF, and link to it.

So it will open in user's default player in a separate window with all controls.

Would you please tell me exactly how to do the above? I can attach a file to an email. But attach to PDF??? Don't know how to do this and can't see how to in Acrobat Pro DC.

 

Thanks,

 

Phil

Ok, that is one step closer, thank you! any way to refer to the attachment within the PDF? in a presentation I would want to make people look at the video at a specific moment of the presentation.

You must use this script in a button or in a bookmark:

 

this.exportDataObject({cName: "Train.mp4", nLaunch: 2});
