License type: lppl Announcement text:
This package allows direct embedding of flash movies into PDF files. This new version (v0.2) allows one to use the open-source flv-player (http://flv-player.net). For convenience this player is included in this package. With that player one can directly embed mp4s and other video-files into PDF files without conversion to swf. Furthermore now playback of videos using controls is possible. See test-flv.pdf for an example.
This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/flashmovie . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/flashmovie (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

flashmovie – Directly embed flash movies into PDF files

The package allows direct embedding of flash movies into PDF files. It is designed for use with pdf.

The package takes advantage of the embedded Adobe Flash player in Adobe Reader 9; the reader is invoked with the ‘rich media annotation’ feature, described in “Adobe Supplement to the ISO 32000 BaseVersion: 1.7 ExtensionLevel: 3”.

This method of embedding movies is attractive since it removes all platform dependencies; however, the user is required to use Acrobat 9.
