I have a query!
How does one play embedded audio/video in pdf document in Android mobile acrobat reader?
(Enbedded in Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat reader DC, as an attachment in a pdf document)
Whereas this can be played easily on the PC/Laptop using even the Adobe reader XI or DC, it cannot be played on the Android mobile Adobe Acrobat reader!
Is there some workaround for this?
Thanks!

The answer is no, support for multimedia playback in PDF is only supported in the Adobe Acrobat desktop products (Reader, Standard, Pro) and not in the iOS, Android, or mobile Acrobat readers.

Hi Gilbertn

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. A described, you are unable to play the video embedded in PDF on android mobile device.

 

Acrobat Reader Mobile is a freeware app, you can  annotate, fill, sign, and share PDFs using the free app. Upgrade to use the premium tools, including Edit PDF, Export PDF, Combine Files, and Organize Pages.

For more information please check out the help page: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/mobile-app-faq.html

Hi Dov Isaacs

 

Can I just ask you why multimedia playback is not supported on mobiles devices?

What I would mainly like to know is: doesn't Adobe want or can't it?

Executive decision. You know the drill. Scream about it in the appropriate section(s) at https://acrobat.uservoice.com/.
