Can I use Acrobat XI to convert an HTML page that contains a flash (.flv) movie to PDF and have it automatically include the flash movie, or must that be added after the initial conversion?

    The answer is Yes but with a disclaimer.

    In Acrobat, if you go to

    Create-> PDF From Web Page-> (Web Page Conversion) Settings -> (HTML Conversion) Settings.

    there is a drop down list in "Other Settings" named "Multimedia Content:".

    If "Embed multimedia content when possible" is selected, the content is captured in PDF but I think the code is optimised (for performance, referenced swfs etc.)  and it is decided on the go whether to capture multimedia or not.


    Do let me know the details of your case and I hope I'd be able to help more.

    It's likely that Acrobat is embedding the SWF player for your video but it won't embed the FLV file itself - and if the parameters for the player don't specify the URL of the media it won't be found when the PDF tries to connect.

    HI Mark,

                    Could you please email me a minimal test file in a zipped folder (I hope it's not a large file) ?
