I have been trying to export this interactive PDF for about 3 days now and it won't work. All the links are in the same folder. The video files are all mp4. There doesn't seem to be any media sitting out of the page frame. There are more than 100 pages but doesn't seem to work as a smaller file either. I have also tried saving it as an IDML document and exporting it that way. I have attached some screenshots of what happens below. My assignment is due tomorrow so really hoping to get some help. Thank you in advance!!

Movies woork only with Publish Onlline and HTML5 export. In PDF it will work if you install Flash extra to the computer and that will not work neither without problems. Since Acrobat 11 it is not possible to run films from PDFs and never did on panel computers. Avoid using mov here.

Someone gave you this as an assignment? As already mentioned most of this won't work on anything but Acrobat or Reader on a desktop and the multimedia depends on Flash Player which dead technology.

 

It might all work in a fixed layout epub, but that only works properly in the Books app on Mac or iOS.
