Convert the video to a non-Flash format (excluding *.flv and *.swf). Inserting or embedding rich media (non-Flash content) in PDFs will continue to be supported. (i.e., Quicktime, MPEG, 3GPP if if H.264 encoded). —https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/flash-format-support-in-pdf.html   ~Barb

Change your preferences, but note that there's little you can do for other people. I don't recommend trying to use multimedia in a PDF.

Note that even with a non-flash format for the video, whether it will work or not is going to be nothing but a crapshoot.

If you can't control the reader app that will be used, forget it.
