Here’s another tool for those of you interested in playing video inside of Acrobat.
The standard Video Tool in Acrobat 9 allows you embed a single video the PDF file or stream it from a URL and allows you to play a video in your PDF file. But what if you wanted to play more than one? What if you wanted to embed a small, low resolution video but provide the option to stream an HD version with the click of a button. Using the default video player, you would need to add separate widgets which may not be the behavior you really want.
The Video Player Plus Widget for Acrobat allows you to…
- Embed multiple videos in the same video widget
- Programmatically switch between the embedded videos and streaming content
- Programmatically switch between embedded player skins
- Programmatically change the skin color and behavior
You can even use the Video Player Plus Widget to replace the default video player that ships with Adobe Acrobat 9.
