Lesson 14. Adding Page Actions, Movies, ... > Using movie and sound files

Using movie and sound files

You can use media clips with your PDF documents in a variety of ways. The movie tool in Adobe Acrobat lets you add movies and sounds as playable clips in your document. You can also assign movies and sounds as actions that automatically play when you click a link, bookmark, or button, or when you open or close a page.

When you add a media clip to a PDF document using the movie tool, or when you add a movie clip as an action, the clip does not become part of the document; the document simply contains a pointer that references the media file. If you plan to distribute your PDF document, you must also include these sound or movie files along with the document. However, when you add a sound clip as an action, the sound clip does become part of the PDF file; in this case, you do not have to include the original sound file.
