I did a movie using Google Earth and I would like to call this video via my PDF presentation constructed by the beamer class, so how can I proceed?

I know that it is very easy to call videos like .mp3, .mp4, .avi, etc ..., but I never faced before to call a video in the Google Earth using beamer.

What file format does your video have? Looking at the help of google earth it seems that at least the pro version allows you to chose from different file formats such as AVI and WMF.

Having either format it should not be a problem to get the movie in the presentation with e.g. the movie15 package.

I have .kmz files when I save my movie in Google Earth. But, fortunately, I could display the video using the command \movie[externalviewer]{Cyclone Areas}{cyclone_regions.kmz} without the package movie15. Thanks by the hint. Cheers! –  José Augusto Paixão Veiga Mar 11 '11 at 11:43

kmz files seems to require a geobrowser installed on the computer. So you need to make sure that the computer you give the presentation on also has GoogleEarth or something similar installed. –  Willie Wong Mar 11 '11 at 14:30
