    How to stream YouTube video in PDF document using ID 5.5?


      I'm using ID 5.5 and know how to insert a video into a document using the Media palette, "Insert video from URL" option. However, I need to stream a YouTube video in an interactive PDF document, and when I try to insert the link from YouTube into the "Insert Video from URL" box, ID doesn't recognize it. I assume this is because YouTube video links don't end with a typical video format file-name ending, such as ".mp4" or ".mov"


      Has anyone been able to stream a YouTube video into a document using ID 5.5? If so, how did you do it?


      Downloading the video and inserting it as a regular video file isn't an option because we need to keep the PDF file size down.


      Thanks much for any advice you may have!
