Hey everyone. I'm trying to add MP4 videos to my pdf document on Indesign. I add them and they play and then when I export as interactive and open it they are just images. No interaction. Any ideas? I've been trying to get through this all morning 😫

Use a hyperlink in the PDF to an external site, such as a YouTube video, or similar, or use FXL ePub, InDesign's Publish Online, or the InDesign plugin (at extra cost), in5.

PDFs aren't really ideal for including videos. All kinds of problems with so-called "interactive" PDFs. https://www.boblevine.us/its-okay-to-say-no-to-interactive-pdf/ As Derek mentions, use another format if possible. Publish Online handles videos beautifully. Here are many samples of intereractive documents, many of which include video: http://bit.ly/PubOnCollection
