I've exported an avi linked video to pdf from InDesign CS4. Video is playing but I have a few questions.
1. Any way to get around the security stuff in Acrobat? Allow blocked content blocked, etc. without user needing to allow.
2. Does the export degrade (lower) video quality if the video is linked? End user said video quality was poor.
Current Acrobat versions will have security issues. The only way I know is to go into Acrobat's preferences for Multimedia, Trust Manager and Security to allow from certain sources. I haven't done that, so you should probably ask advice on the Acrobat forum.
Linking video should have no effect on quality. It's all in how you've encoded the video.
