Multimedia Functions in PDF (Rich Media)

The function “Multimedia” on frames for embedded videos is no longer usefully supported under Windows 10 by the current Acrobat (Reader) versions. Since embedding videos in PDF files may cause many problems (large files, missing codecs, no playback in browsers, playback only on the Mac), we recommend linking videos via web links (e.g. YouTube or Vimeo), which are placed on a picture frame with a preview image.

The following multimedia functions can be used in PDF:

  • Audio
  • Image galleries with layers (coming soon)
