========================== The media9 LaTeX Package ========================== Author: 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: * pdfLaTeX, LuaLaTeX * (Lua)LaTeX --> dvips --> ps2pdf/Distiller * (Xe)LaTeX --> (x)dvipdfmx The package was written in the new LaTeX3 syntax. Requirements: * l3kernel (LaTeX package), version >=2012/07/16 * l3packages (LaTeX package), version >=2012/07/16 * pdfTeX, version >=1.30 * Ghostscript, version >=8.31 or Adobe Distiller for PS to PDF conversion * dvipdfmx, version >=20120420 for DVI to PDF conversion * Adobe Reader, version >=9 Installation: MiKTeX and TeXLive users should run the package manager for installation. Otherwise, a manual install into the local TeX-Directory-Structure (TDS) root directory can be done along the following steps: 1.) Download the TDS compliant package file http://mirror.ctan.org/install/macros/latex/contrib/media9.tds.zip. 2.) Find the local TDS root directory by running kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFLOCAL on the command line. 3.) 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. 4.) 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. License: This material is subject to the LaTeX Project Public License.

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.
