Can't embed H.264 videos in Acrobat X Pro

Adobe Acrobat X Pro won't let me embed a video file which I created as

"MPEG4: iPhone H.264 (640x480)" in Corel Video Studio.


The video file plays fine in Windows Media Player, QuickTime, Corel Video Studio, and

Final Cut Express (on a Mac, which also displays "H.264 compression" in properties for the file).


Here's an analysis of the file from MediaInfo:

Format: MPEG-4;  Format profile: Sony PSP; 

Codec ID: MSNV;    File size: 110 MiB;   Duration: 6mn 0s;

Overall bit rate mode: Variable ;  Overall bit rate: 2 556 Kbps;   Video ID: 1;

Format: AVC;     Format/Info: Advanced Video Codec;   Format profile: Baseline@L3.0;

Format settings, CABAC: No;   Format settings, ReFrames: 2 frames;   Format settings, GOP: M=1, N=15;  

Codec ID: avc1;    Codec ID/Info:  Advanced Video Coding;  

Bit rate mode: Variable;   Bit rate: 2 393 Kbps;   Maximum bit rate: 2 500 Kbps; 

Width: 640 pixels;   Height: 480 pixels;   Display aspect ratio: 4:3;  

Original display aspect ratio: 4:3;   Frame rate mode: Constant;  Frame rate: 30.000 fps;  

Standard: NTSC;   Color space: YUV;   Chroma subsampling: 4:2:0; Bit depth: 8 bits;

Scan type: Progressive; Bits/(Pixel*Frame): 0.260;   Stream size: 103 MiB (94%); 

Color primaries: BT.709-5, BT.1361, IEC 61966-2-4, SMPTE RP177;   

Transfer characteristics: BT.709-5, BT.1361;  

Matrix coefficients: BT.709-5, BT.1361, IEC 61966-2-4 709, SMPTE RP177


I only have Adobe Acrobat X Pro CS5.5 and DreamWeaver CS5.5 (Educational/Academic versions),

and it seems I can't get Adobe Media Encoder separately. I have to get Adobe Acrobat X Suite or something similar.


Any ideas would be welcome.

    The Sony PSP codec profile is the issue - that's proprietary and isn't supported in Flash Player.
