I am in the final stages of building a 50+ page RichMedia eBook. (This is for teaching about woodblock printmaking.) The file contains links to 17 movie clips, and dozens of audio clips. (None of this is embedded.)
Recently, I have been having in issue where Acrobat Reader (9) will crash if the file is read, closed, opened, and then read again. I have created a stripped-down version - three pages, with only two audio links - that still reproduces the problem, which happens like this:
Play an audio clip. Either let it run to the end, or stop it part-way along; it makes no difference.
Play another audio clip.
Close the file. Don’t restart the Acrobat Reader.
Open the same file again.
Try and play an audio clip.
Boom ... down she goes.
The same crash happens using Acrobat Pro. I have uploaded the test file (344Kb zipped .pdf file), for anybody who would like to see this - file is here. I would very much appreciate any thoughts on why this is happening, and how I can fix it. TIA!
