CTAN update: movie15

Date: October 14, 2005 11:48:35 AM CEST
On Thu, 13 Oct 2005, Alexander Grahn submitted an update to the movie15 package. This package defines \includemovie with PDF-1.5 compatibility. Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/movie15/ Summary description: multimedia inclusion package License type: lppl Announcement text:
1.) The image file argument of the `poster' option has become optional with this update. This new variant of the `poster' option causes the player plugin of Adobe Reader to show the very first frame of the movie or to show the frame at the beginning of a movie segment, which has been specified with the `startat' and `endat' options. 2.) A new user macro has been added: \movieref It allows embedded movies and sounds to be referenced from any location within the document. `\movieref' creates a hyperlink to either stop, pause or resume the media, or to restart it at different settings, such as frame rate, volume and start/end positions. Furthermore, clicking the hyperlink opens the page containing the media it is pointing to. 3.) Compatibility commands `\movie' and `\hyperlinkmovie' have been added such that `movie15' can be used as a replacement for Till Tantau's `multimedia' package, which is part of his Beamer-Class. The benefits are fully embeddable media files and more accepted media formats.
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
