I'm working on a beamer presentation where I have many animations to show. I have *.avi videos and I'm using the multimedia package:

\movie[height=XXpt,width=XX,poster]{\includegraphics[height=XXpt,width=XXpt]{image.png}}{video.avi}

with this command I get the image on the slide, and after clicking it the video starts. Once finished playing, on the slide reappers the initial image.

My question is: is there a way to make the video stop on its last frame? Or to put the last frame as an image that will appear automatically at the end of the video?

I tried to use the 'open' option, and it works, but then I have to click elsewhere to go on with the slides and the presentation.. can I avoid this?

Thanks!

Which PDF viewer on which OS do you use? –  AlexG Mar 5 at 15:13
    
Adobe reader on windows seven –  Aki Mar 5 at 15:20
    
Then you can use the media9 package. It doesn't rewind to the first frame after reaching the end. –  AlexG Mar 5 at 15:21
    
Thanks.. now I'm having trouble installing the media9 packages.. sigh –  Aki Mar 5 at 16:11
    
This should be easy with MiKTeX or TeXLive-2013. –  AlexG Mar 5 at 16:56
