I'm trying to create an interactive newsletter to be sent to clients by email,
and I was wondering how to get a video file to load upon opening.
Currently you have to download the pdf to view the video.
I'm working on OSX 10.9.5 in InDesign CS5.
And I have the video as an integrated file, would my results change if I linked the file from a web link?
If the video is only linked it would reduce the file size of the pdf and it would make it accessible for people opening on a device (like iPad) which does not allow flash which must be installed with Acrobat to view embedded media.
But I would recommend to send the people only a link to the PDF. I hate it, when my iPhone filled with useless stuff, if I would like to see it I could donwload, but as attachment make my space overfilled.
