Hi, 

 

Ok, so I've spent 2 days trying everything to figure out this really uhhhh, what should be simple thing. 

 

I've created a PDF with some compressed video footage, which I have successfully embedded via Rich Media feature and link to computer file. (as I can't seem to link to URL file - as Adobe states you can as well...?)  So - when I send the PDF with my embedded videos to my husband - he doesn't get the videos in the PDF. Is that because it's linked to my computer file? Probably, so questions are:

How can I link to a URL file? 

OR How can i succesfully do this? Get the reciever of my PDF to see my embedded videos.

 

Thanks, 

Katie

Is this an Acrobat question?

You should be able to link to a video on a media server - but many people try to link to Youtube or similar and that cannot work. You can't email a PDF with embedded video, it will be MUCH too big too email. So probably it wasn't embedded.  Let's look into your URL file - is it Youtube?

Hi, 

Thanks for your response.

 

so, I’m trying to link to a Vimeo video from my Vimeo account. It’s a http address straight to video (rather than an embedding code) - but when I do this in the Acrobat Pro >> Rich Media ‘embed video’ pop up window (which says “upload file or enter URL link”) I get a message saying “that is not a file” well NO! it’s a URL link! 

 

Any ideas? 

 

Thanks, 

Katie

Vimeo, like Youtube and Facebook and many others is NOT a media server. It's a full service video player, and they don't offer their videos "raw" for apps which need to do their own playing. Mostly you need to use a service advertised as a media server. (If Vimeo DOES have a raw mode, I'd love to hear it, I could really use it...!)

Ok, nice! Thanks, I’ll look into this then. (I’ll let you know if Vimeo has raw mode!)

Why not send your husband a plain vanilla e-mail with a link to your video on YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, etc...?  Problem solved!
