I want to embed an mp4 file into a pdf document that my client has placed on youtube.
Hi, do you mean you want to embed Youtube video OR did your client send you the original mp4 files for embedding. I understand that's the case, since your talking about hard drive link.
Go File > Place and import your mp4 file.
Open Window > Interactive > Media, and select a Controller skin (important, otherwise video would run only once)
Export as interactive PDF (not print): important! Also make sure "include multimedia content" is ticked.
Video should be embedded, just like an image. No need for sharing video files. Just like images, link would point at your local drive, no problem here.
You say your client can't run the video: what about you? is your interactive pdf working fine for you?
Oh, by the way... what reader does your client use? Acrobat reader (version?) or another one (Foxit i.e.)
That may explain why he can"t read the video. Basically, he needs a reader that includes Flash player. Adobe reader is obviously recommended.
You can use Adobe Media Encoder to further compress the video.
Thank you, i was able to view the pdf and video on my other computer so i think the issue is on my end. I struggled for hours until i decided to watch it on my other computer and it worked, thanks,
