I put a video in a PDF with the command:


If my PDF is not in fullscreen mode it works, but if I put the pdf in fullscreen mode, when I push with the mouse on the video the PDF jumps to the next page. Is there any solution to prevent this?

This would be a problem with the pdf viewer, I suppose. Which viewer are you using? – Torbjørn T. Sep 26 '11 at 10:18

Assuming that you might be using Adobe Reader X, it has a specific set of options dedicated to full screen view:

enter image description here

One specific option deals with clicking during full screen mode: Left click to go forward one page; right click to go back one page. With this set, one is more likely to jump pages rather than obtain the desired result (of opening a video in this case). It is even more likely to experience this behaviour if the hyperref settings are such that document hyperlinks do not show a border, making it difficult to identify the physical location of the hyperlink.

As mentioned, these settings only pertain to full screen mode. As such, you will not experience the same jumping when not in full screen mode, validating your current scenario.
