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

    Ivan in Joetsu

      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.

            OK. Thanks for that. I'll try to find a way of saving as H.264 that isn't Sony PSP.

            There was no way of knowing it was Sony PSP from within Corel Video Studio, but I guess that's an issue for a Corel VS forum...

             

            One point, though: Adobe Acrobat X Pro does let me embed another video clip created in Corel Video Studio:

            "MPEG4: iPod H.264" (320x240), and MediaFile also identifies this as Sony PSP (see below).

            (But I want 640x480 resolution).

              Actually, I've found some FLV output options in Corel Video Studio, including 640x480.

              There's some loss in sound resolution (48kHz to 22kHz) and it means doing a lot of video rendering work over again,

              but it seems to work in Acrobat.

               

              Thanks for your help, anyway.
