Chapter SIXTEEN. Working with Multimedia > TIP 127: Adding Movies to a Document

TIP 127: Adding Movies to a Document

In Acrobat 7 Professional you can add a movie to any document from within the program by embedding the movie or linking to it. An embedded movie is integrated into the PDF document itself, while a linked movie simply has a programmed link from the PDF document to the original movie, stored in its original location.

Play to Your Audience

When working with multimedia in a project, you have to take your audience into account. If you're targeting the cutting-edge design crowd, you can safely work with the latest and greatest in terms of media formats. This group is likely to have the most recent version of the media player, and they're also more likely to have a high-bandwidth Internet connection. On the other hand, if you are designing for a much more generic audience, you shouldn't assume that they have, for example, the latest Flash player and design material specifically for that player. Some functionality requires Flash 7, but a simple animated logo, for instance, doesn't. If you want to cater to a wide audience, add renditions—that's coming up in Tip 128.
