BTW, don't use \whiledo but \multiframe for loops with parameters around animate frames.

comment Latin abbreviation management
@MarcvanDongen Duden also says that no line break may occur at \,. Does La(TeX) automatically ensures this or do we have to put the abbreviation into \mbox?

Typographic rules differ between countries. German typography, e.\,g., prescribes a small space in between [Duden, Richtlinien für den Schriftsatz].

comment Media9 is not working when embedding video into beamer
@Symbol1 : Of course not in PDF, but in web pages. I just wanted to point out the HTML+SWF / PDF+SWF analogy. PDF viewers other than AR have never implemented SWF support and thus cannot have dropped it.

@Symbol1 All popular Web-Browsers for Desktop OSs use FlashPlayer as a plugin and allow for the two-way communication you are describing. I am pretty sure it is simply due to the lack of interest that FlashPlayer support is missing in alternative PDF viewers rather than security concerns.

Wrong use of \includemedia plus wrong PDF viewer. AdobeReader is required. For example, take the code in tex.stackexchange.com/a/155378 and replace all occurrences of aaa.mp4 with your mmc7.mp4.

comment pgfplots + animate: Incorrect math mode symbols (unwanted verbatim)
Thanks for sorting this out! Originally, I wanted to sanitize the colon ':' char, which may appear in the buttonfg and buttonbg command options, in case the french babel option was set by the user. I considerably extended the list of characters to be sanitized when I added JavaScript support which may occur in the timeline file, in order to correctly read JS code from that file. In the next version, while reading the command and environment options, only the colon's catcode will be fixed. The full list of special chars is sanitized only when the timeline file (with JS code) is read.

comment How to embed videos in pdf with ConTeXt?
@Aditya : But then, width=..., height=..., extras=... would look like optional settings. However, width and height are needed to correctly size the widget and therefore should be mandatory arguments. How does ConTeXt distinguish between mandatory and optional arguments? Could you give me some pointer to where this is documented and how to define new commands?
