comment Media9 compiles but embedded video gives “Unable to connect to content” “TypeError - Error #1009”
For this particular case you can use \addmediapath{../filepath} to add a non-sublevel dir to the search path and omit the path within \includemedia. FlashPlayer doesn't allow relative paths outside the current directory for security reasons. Absolute paths to media files, even outside the current directory tree, should work as expected.

comment How to make an animation with some previous slides
@Tarass Once set, the contents of the token register \pdfpageattr is en vigueur for the following pages of a PDF document. But one can reset it to a saved value. I am going to update the answer.

Two errors: (1) In Strobe, the correct FlashVar is src not source (which is VPlayer). (2) The ffmpeg generated file is file2.mp4, but you try to embed file2.MP4. Case matters.

This statement is not true.

comment How to abbreviate “\begin{frame}”, “\end{frame}”, and “\frametitle”?
Isn't the official \begin{frame}{My frame title}...\end{frame} short enough?

comment pdfLaTeX viewer shows no video
Currently, only two readers work: A-Reader for Win and A-Reader for OSX. Not texworks, not evince, not the embedded PDF viewers of popular web browsers.

@cfr: Are you referring to my comment in your first comment??? If so, it is quite a bold extrapolation of my statement.

@Aditya, You may edit my answer, if you wish. Or write your own one, of course.

comment How to embed videos in pdf with ConTeXt?
@Aditya: I am not familiar with ConTeXt, but isn't the use of \define the right way to write new commands in ConTeXt?

comment Seemingly simple include(d)media video does not play
Are you using AdobeReader 9 or above on one of Mac OS X or Windows for viewing the PDF? Note that media9is A-Reader only. And you need the FlashPlayer installed on your system (in Windows, the version for Firefox, not the ActiveX plugin for IExplorer).

Do you think it is really necessary; maybe, we can close it immediately?

Yeah, TeXLive is quite responsive to upstream changes, in contrast to MiKTeX, btw. ;)

The question refers to an obsolete package version. The reported issue has already been fixed by a previous update.

@Mico No, the current version is not [2015/03/11] but [2015/06/19]. The current version doesn't produce the reported issue.

comment How to embed a video in beamer and reproduce it by using Okular?
For Okular, I would try \usepackage{multimedia}. See texdoc beamer.
