I have followed the Movie and Sounds support doc, but I can't get the MP4 to play automatically in the PDF. It plays fine in the InDesign Media player. Help!

You will need to add the video in Acrobat using the media tool.

Although you can add video into a PDF, there are a number of issues that may prevent the video from playing properly. And, you may want to consider a different method and format to present this document.

That sounds like the problem is unsolvable. I tried to load the mp4 file and I tried Placing through Vimeo. And, yes, the video played the mo4 file and was in good shape. But it would not play in the PDF. I placed a Hyperlink to the video on vimeo. But the only code that would work is the download from vimeo. Disappointing!

Correction, the MP4 file played well in the Media panel of InDesign. But not on the page or in the PDF. I will take your suggestion and use Acrobat to load the video in InDesign. Thank you for your response.
