Now that adobe has ditched flash, the 'insert video' feature in Indesign is pretty useless (unless you just want your video to play in Adobe Acrobat with no control funcitons - it won't even stop playing which is really annoying for the end user!)
Is there a good work around? Did Adobe ever offer up an alternative way to do this as well as before when flash was working?
All help much appreciated.
if you want to do a .pdf the answer is no. If, like bob said, you publish other formats, your fine. Please explain further so we can help?
Hi sorry I should've given more information. Yes it was to a .pdf that I was having problems with. I'm really missing all the controls and functions you were able to use originally
All of that was nothing but a kludge, anyway. You can still use it, kind of, but you have to change your preferences in Acrobat to play multimedia without Flash.
Thanks that's helpful. When publishing, it's held on Adobe's servers. But it still leaves a big gaping hole if your document needs to be private for a company and sensitive? Or am I missing something
Thanks Diane, that's certiainly an interesting alternative. I'm still between a rock and a hardplace though as that's another paid subscription. I guess for a free PDF to pass onto clients, there is no straightforward solution I guess
How sensitive is the info? FWIW, when it's not super-sensitive, I've had clients put the URL for the Publish Online document behind a firewall. The URL is undiscoverable, so no one will happen on to it by accident. It is true, though, that if someone emails the link to another person--to anyone, really--they could access the document. Putting the link behind a firewall is sufficient in some cases, but certainly not all.
