Last year, I could make
movie15 work in my
powerdot presentations, through the
dvi2ps ps2pdf route. I re-visited recently and could not get the movies (
*.wma) to appear anymore. I spent the better part of two days trying to understand
media9 as its replacement, and I can get the two to work independently, but not together (At least not real, pretty like). Has anyone successfully accomplished this, or is there a reason this will probably not work?
I converted my WMA to MP4, and if I go the
dvipdf route, using
media9 in either an article class or a
powerdot class, I get the movie to show up correctly, however, while the article class "looks" right, the
powerdot class PDF only covers the bottom 1/4 of the pdf page.
If I go the
ps2pdf (GS 9.05) the
powerdot and the article class both look right (takes the entire page), but the movie doesn't show up in either one. I can post specifics, but I thought I would get the big picture answer that it is indeed possible. I've tried most of the suggestions I have found (i.e.
-dNOSAFER), but no luck!
Response to Alexander: Excellent, at least now I know someone has it working and its just a matter of the right format/order of 1s and 0s. I have a pretty similar setup, and when I ran your code, I got a:
'powerdot-default.ps' not found.
So I added a style option:
and then got the error:
! Package babel Error: You haven't loaded the option english yet.
So I added:
(Just in case anyone receives these errors, a work around for me until I find the right problem).
Finally I got a
StrobeMediaPlayback.swf not found, probably because I do not have it installed (did it come with v0.3?) I just have the original
VPlayer.swf. So I will try and find
StrobeMediaPlayback.swf since I am still in the same boat, the PDF looks great (formating wise), but the movie still is not there... do I have to manually update to v0.3? I thought I was setup for automatic updating, but maybe not.
Could I ask what your switches/parameters are for
