I have embedded swf into pdf. When I try to run my animation I do receive java script alert:
Acrobat has encountered an error while playing this media clip: The media clip cannot be played in the manner that the author intended. you may need to upgrade your player software or install new player software. Adobe(R) Flash(R) Player
PDF: I try to open embedded swf with app.media.openPlayer (PDF is generated from Tex)
Reader version: I do receive the same error for 9 a X versions of Adobe reader
PC settings: Windows 7, Flash version 11,3,300,262, installed for IE and other browsers (Firefox)
Build Settings: ActionScriptProject, Adobe Flash Builder 4.6, Flex 4.6, cs5 UI controls
Animation is running without problem in browser, ...
Animations were running well when I built them with older builder version.
When I build same animation in Adobe Flash Builder 4.6 with Flex 3.6A then it is running but I have problem with animation size.
Could not find any solution on the web. Does anybody know how to resolve this issue?
Solution: Build project with Flex 4.1A. (original SDK for flash builder 4.0.) Steps:
We have built several screen PDFs with embedded flash ( "legacy" rich media way). We have experienced several problems - different versions of SDKs, changes in Acrobat (Reader) versions, incompatible flash versions. Users have to change (break) reader security settings to enable animations.
I do not suggest to use "legacy" rich media in PDFs. Adobe strongly advises all PDF authors to use Flash media in their PDF files. You can read more here: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3450658
