I am trying to use package movie15 to include videos in my PDF produced by the command pdflatex, however all the time I use this command the followed part of massage rises:

(/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/fancybox/fancybox.sty
Style option: `fancybox' v1.3 <2000/09/19> (tvz)
) (./movie15.sty (/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/oberdiek/ifdraft.sty)
(/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/ms/everyshi.sty)

! LaTeX Error: Command \hyperlinkmovie already defined.
               Or name \end... illegal, see p.192 of the manual.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
 ...                                              

l.4380 }

How should I proceed to avoid it?

Cheers!

PS: I have downloaded the file movie15.sty and place it in the same directory I run the command pdflatex mylatexfile

If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they are marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "101010" on it). –  Caramdir Mar 13 '11 at 1:51

Could you please add a minimal example that illustrates your problem (including the preamble). –  Caramdir Mar 13 '11 at 1:51

Also (sorry for the triple post), usually you don't need to download packages—they should already be contained in your TeX distribution. –  Caramdir Mar 13 '11 at 1:52

Apparently you are using two packages (or a class and a package) which both define the \hyperlinkmovie. As @Caramdir already states, we would need a full minimal example document to know which packages are used. –  Martin Scharrer Mar 13 '11 at 2:23

Just a wild guess: it seems that both the packages multimedia and movie15 are being loaded; that will cause the error mentioned. –  Gonzalo Medina Mar 13 '11 at 3:04

Without a MWE, I think the comment from Gonzalo Medina is the closest that can be got to an answer:

Hey I got the same problem, I had: \usepackage{multimedia} \usepackage{movie15} so I commented \usepackage{multimedia} a it worked for me. Thanks. %\usepackage{multimedia} \usepackage{movie15} –  user11966 Feb 21 '12 at 19:48
    
Yes. Both packages define the command \hyperlinkmovie. –  Martin Schröder Feb 21 '12 at 20:04
