Quite often I create presentations for clients that utilize video. It used to be easy to import a video, export it as an interactive PDF.  With the end of support of flash, how can I make these videos work in the future.  Adding in a hyperlink to youtube, etc. is not the solution. I want the video to run with the transition to a slide in the presentation. The only solution I came up with was to export the slide deck to jpg, import it into PowerPoint, and run the video there. I would hate to think that would be the only option available.  

Through the use of creative cloud, I am up to date on all my Adobe software. Thanks for any help you can provide.

You could use FXL ePub or, alternatively, InDesign’s Publish Online (though you have to be online to view a Publish Online document). You could consider in5, the InDesign plugin (at extra cost): https://ajarproductions.com/pages/products/in5/

I personally would never put a video in a PDF. Lots of problems there. Bob Levine outlines them here: https://www.boblevine.us/its-okay-to-say-no-to-interactive-pdf/

Instead, recommend using Publish Onine, which can be used for presentations (though internet access required). Handles video beautifully. Here are examples of may different documents that use it, including a couple that were for presentations: http://bit.ly/PubOnCollection

It's not the only option, but IMO, it's the best one.

Diane has already point you to my blog post on the topic which I wrote years ago. While you can futz around with the multimedia options in your Acrobat preferences, you cannot force those options on others.
