A link to an audio file with Acrobat Reader 11.0.0 on Mac OS X opens the audio file with an external multimedia viewer other than iTunes, even though the audio file is configured to be opened with iTunes. How can I view and change the Acrobat settings for opening multimedia content?
You can change Preferences > Multimedia (legacy) > Preferred media player, but ultimately with legacy media it will play in what the operating system wants to use for that file extension.
The available options in Preferences > Multimedia (legacy) > Preferred Media Player are only Flash and QuickTime for Adobe Reader 11.0.0 in Mac OS X 10.8.2, but still, audio files are launched with an external multimedia viewer other than iTunes, while these audio files are configured to be opened with iTunes and double-clicking opens them with iTunes, meaning the operating system does open these audio files with iTunes. There is definitely something wrong with the way Adobe Reader handles multimedia content under Mac OS X. Thanks again for your help.
In Reader, when playing a sound clip in a PDF, is there a way to Stop/Pause?
(An author I work with annotates a PDF for updates to a work, and dictates long passages for capture by a dictaphone typist. It would simplify matters if he could add dictation as sound clips to the PDF, but the typist would have to be able to pause the playback.)
I suspect I'm not seeing the obvious, but please bear with me ...
The sound clips are created in Adobe Reader as annotations, each inserting an icon into the document. When the icon is clicked, the clip plays from start to finish, with no controls for stop, pause, resume etc. Is there a way to show controls, or to play the sound in an external media player?
