Adobe Acrobat X.

Content / media in the "Select a file or enter a URL-address ..."

I write

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPeVAvPeLB8.

and press OK

Get a  message "Do not specify any single media file".

 

Why ?

    I think it's saying you have to give the URL of a movie .That isn't a movie, it's a web page which shows a movie. Youtube's movies aren't intended for use as single media files, they want people to visit Youtube (and see the adverts).

    There used to a be a Flash-based YouTube widget for Acrobat, but I think it got taken down due to legal issues.

    You might just consider putting in a link to watch the video and let the OS take care of viewing it in your browser.

    Acrobat XI's changes in the sandbox and player decoupling broke it, sorry.
