Yes, perfectly possible - provided the stream is being sent in Flash format (RTMP or RTMPE) and not via something like RealMedia. Simply create a new Video annotation in Acrobat Pro and enter the URL for the stream instead of browsing for a file.
If you aren't streaming but instead are serving a progressive download (via HTTP) then you can also enter that as a URL, but it must end in the extension for a recognizable video format:
Thanks for the reply I'm sorry but I realized afterwards I didn't explain myself too well. I'm wanting to create multiple text links within acrobat that go to individual streamed videos that pop up complete with controls inside the page.
p.s. I did try what you suggested and tried creating a video annotation then subbing a URL instead of the browse file dialog box. I'm a newcomer to this so it's probably me - but nothing showed up. There was no visible object ?? Maybe I'm a bit out of my depth
You can set a video rich media annotation (RMA) to open in a floating window, but the skin has to be self-contained - the playback controls are embedded in the PDF file as a SWF widget, not downloaded from anywhere else. In Acrobat X itself you cannot set the position of the floating window (it's possible with low-level code, not from within Acrobat). RMAs can be activated by scripted text links.
Creating a non-popup RMA is very easy - pick the Video tool from the Tools Pane > Content panel, drag out a rectangle on your page where the player is to be shown, and pick the URL or file. Once created, return to the hand tool and click it to activate.
