I am creating some pop ups on a spread in InDesign. I can launch images text boxes etc. by converting to buttons and seeting them as hidden until  triggered. I want to do the same with a video but there is no option to convert or to hide until triggered. I have tride just hiding the video then setting a button to play it . this dosem't work. any advice on getting this to work?

Use a multi state object and have the button first go to the state and then play the video.
