First point…the preview panel is for SWF only and is unreliable for anything else.
Secondly, and the most obvious question that needs to be asked. Did you export to PDF (Interactive)?
Yes I exported as interactive with all buttons and media included.
The media was set with my own poster image , with controller, play on page load unclicked. Though I did try alternatives (i.e. play on page load, no controller etc.) just in case.
won't play when exported as an interactive PDF,
u missit Bob ?
Didn’t miss anything. Just making sure.
have you got other artwork on the page?
Use Flv or f4v format, after you have placed video into your layout, make sure that you don´t scale or crop video frame at all.
(Whren you File > Place a video, you will have a loaded cursor with video icon. Click the empty spot on page with loaded cursor, don´t draw a rectangle or click on the top of some exisiting frame)
It´s important that you have your video in 100% encoded size in your layout. If you need to scale or crop it, load that video into Adobe Media Encoder and do it there, and re-encode the video to the correct size and shape aftrwards.
Adobe Media Encoder ships with InDesign.
I have tried this and whilst I don't get the info about cropping the video is still not embdedded when exporteed as an interactive PDF. I only have some text and 1 or 2 images on the page.
It has been 4 years since the last post. However I hope my reply here will help those who are looking for an answer to this issue. THe solution is:
(a) Video title (filename) - cannot be too long. It should not contain symbols as well. E.g. & - etc etc.
(b) Delete the embedded video. Place it in back (fresh link /embed).
Export it out as PDF interactive and it works.
I just wanted to thank you, I was having this problem and your solution was the right one for me.
Best regards, merry christmas and a happy new year.
actually its not working yet .
when i export it to pdf i didn't see the video
I have this same issue. Some people can see the videos some can't. Seems to be an issue between Flash and Adobe Acrobat. I see a lot of posts about this but Adobe isn't responding...
Flash player MUST be installed for this to work.
Given that it’s already been declared dead by 2020 I would find some other way of producing this document. You can’t force people to install flash player.
