Indeed, spaces in file and directory names are evil.

comment Picture preview of video with TikZ (LaTeX) in PDF
All PDF viewers that I know of (including the firefox and chrome built-in viewers) are at least able to display the frame that was specified as the poster image (default: the first frame). I tested this with the animate manual. I recommend sending a bug report to the mendeley developers. CorelDraw is not a dedicated PDF viewer.

@alfC See section 'Additional Information & Tips' in trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Encode/H.264 on bitrate and compatibility options.

comment Trouble using ffmpeg to encode a h264 video in a .mp4 container to use with media9
@alfC: Frames per second is specified with -r ..., the number of key frames with -g .... I usually take the same number as with the -r option to have one key frame per second. Keyframes come into play when trying to seek within the video using the scrub-bar of whatever player component (e. g. jw-player) is used or the arrow keys of the keyboard with VPlayer.swf. Flash Player can only seek between key frames. As for quality, i have relied on the default settings of libx264 so far; it should be adjusted by setting the bitrate option. – AlexG

comment Did anyone succeed in playing embedded movies inside Acrobat in Linux?
See the link in my first comment. It also adds an option to ensure even pixel numbers in both video dimensions. Recent libx264versions seem to use a different profile/pix format which is not compatible with Flash Player.

At least -profile:v high -pix_fmt yuv420p should be added to the ffmpeg command line to get a usable MP4 video file (item 3 of your list).

@kyle: Ok, in the next version the cursor will be explicitly hidden when the mouse is moved out.

comment Include live remote image in Beamer presentation
@kyle: Would you mind making permanent the URL of the maw-the-lawn simulation? It is a great example of demonstrating live image display (I don't know of a better one).

comment Include live remote image in Beamer presentation
@kyle: Providing some kind of loading feedback isn't that bad an idea, I believe. It should move out of view when the mouse is moved out of the image display.

comment How do I include a local GIF image into beamer using media9 package
If it is a single, to-be-embedded image file, why don't you convert the GIF to PNG and insert that using \includegraphics as usual? Is it animated GIF? Note that the media9 based method relies on using the Flash Player plugin in Adobe Reader which doesn't support animated GIFs. Moreover your code cannot work. StrobeMediaPlayback isn't the right app, use SlideShow.swf as in the answer you cited.

comment Embedding sound files into beamer presentation with media9
@truthseeker APlayer is the App, igottafever.mp3 the media it will play. And Flash Player is the VM in which the App runs.
