Adding a video to a page

October 11Hits:0
One of our team has created a PDF from MS PowerPoint. In Acrobat Pro 9 they subsequently added a page to the PDF and added an MP4 file to it via the Multimedia > Video Tools option. Everything works well except that the video is rendered at a larger size that which it was recorded. The result is that the image appears slightly fuzzy. I can't see a way of controlling the size of the placeholder for the video file. Is there a way?


The problem with plugins is not everybody has QuickTime player or browser add-ons required to play the media.  And there's little chance that visitors will download and install required apps just for your site.
The modern approach is HTML5 <video> with MP4, OGG and WEBM files to support all modern browsers and mobile devices.
Below is the HTML5 code:
<!doctype html>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>HTML5 with Video</title>
<!--help for older IE browsers-->
<!--[if lt IE 9]>
<script src="http://html5shiv.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js"></script>
video {
    margin:0 auto;
<h2>Use 3 File Types to support all browsers &amp; mobile devices:  MP4, WEBM and OGV.</h2>
<h3>Online Video Converter
<!--begin video-->
<video controls poster="Your_poster_image.jpg">
<!--these are 6 sec sample videos for testing purposes. Replace sample-videos with your own files-->
<source src="http://techslides.com/demos/sample-videos/small.webm" type="video/webm">
<source src="http://techslides.com/demos/sample-videos/small.ogv" type="video/ogg">
<source src="http://techslides.com/demos/sample-videos/small.mp4" type="video/mp4">
If you're seeing this, you're using an
outdated browser that doesn't support
the video tag. </video>
<!--end video-->
Bigger videos take longer to load.  Consider reducing the length, height/width & frame rate to get the file size down.
