The media9 Pack­age

© 2012–\today Alexan­der Grahn

De­scrip­tion

This pack­age pro­vides an in­ter­face to em­bed in­ter­ac­tive Flash (SWF) and 3D ob­jects (Adobe U3D & PRC) as well as video and sound files or streams in the pop­u­lar MP4, FLV, MP3 for­mats into PDF doc­u­ments with Acro­bat-9/X com­pat­i­bil­ity. Play­back of mul­ti­me­dia files re­lies on Adobe Flash Player which sup­ports the ef­fi­cient H.264 codec for video com­pres­sion.

This pack­age is based on the RichMe­dia An­no­ta­tion, an Adobe ad­di­tion to the PDF spec­i­fi­ca­tion. It re­places the now ob­so­lete movie15 pack­age.

>Note that Adobe Reader for Linux has dropped Flash sup­port since ver­sion 9.4.2.

Sup­ported PDF mak­ing work­flows are:

  • pdf, Lua
  • (Lua) ⇒ dvips ⇒ ps2pdf/Dis­tiller
  • (Xe) ⇒ (x)dvipdfmx

The pack­age was writ­ten in the new 3 syn­tax.

In­stal­la­tion

MiK and Live users should run the pack­age man­ager for in­stal­la­tion.

Other­wise, a man­ual in­stall into the lo­cal -Direc­tory-Struc­ture (TDS) root di­rec­tory can be done along the fol­low­ing steps:

  1. Down­load the TDS com­pli­ant pack­age file media9.tds.zip
  1. Find the lo­cal TDS root di­rec­tory by run­ning kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFLOCAL on the com­mand line.
  1. Unzip me­dia9.tds.zip into the lo­cal TDS root di­rec­tory pre­vi­ously found. Depend­ing on the lo­ca­tion of this di­rec­tory, you may need to be logged in as Root/Ad­min­is­tra­tor.
  1. After in­stal­la­tion, up­date the file­name database by run­ning texhash on the com­mand line. Again, Root/Ad­min­is­tra­tor priv­i­leges may be re­quired.

For up­dat­ing the pack­age, re­peat the steps given above.

me­dia9 – Mul­ti­me­dia in­clu­sion pack­age with Adobe Reader-9/X com­pat­i­bil­ity

The pack­age pro­vides an in­ter­face to em­bed in­ter­ac­tive Flash (SWF) and 3D ob­jects (Adobe U3D & PRC), as well as video and sound files or streams in the pop­u­lar MP4, FLV and MP3 for­mats into PDF doc­u­ments with Acro­bat-9/X com­pat­i­bil­ity. Play­back of mul­ti­me­dia files uses the built-in Flash Player of Adobe Reader and does, there­fore, not de­pend on ex­ter­nal plug-ins. Flash Player sup­ports the ef­fi­cient H.264 codec for video com­pres­sion.

The pack­age is based on the RichMe­dia An­no­ta­tion, an Adobe ad­di­tion to the PDF spec­i­fi­ca­tion. It re­places the now ob­so­lete movie15 pack­age.
