# Beamer: Media 9 with overlay

I've used \includemedia to insert an animation (.swf file) in my slides. It works. Besides the animation, I also want to include three bullet items that show up one after one, which are done by \item<1->, \item<2->, \item<3->. I want the animation to keep running during all three items.

The problem is, the animation needs to be either reloaded (if set activate=pageopen, which takes time to reload) or click (if set activate=onclick, which I prefer). Below is my MWE. Is there a better solution?

\documentclass[10pt]{beamer}
\usepackage{media9}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}

\begin{figure}[ht]
\includemedia[width=5cm,height=2.5cm,activate=onclick,deactivate=pageclose]
{\colorbox{white}{click}}{test.swf}
\end{figure}

\begin{itemize}
\item<1-> \textbf{\texttt{One}}
\item<2-> \textbf{\texttt{Two}}
\item<3-> \textbf{\texttt{Three}}
\end{itemize}

\end{frame}
\end{document}

• I can't test neither your code nor my suggestion (my viewers don't work with media9), but this might work: \onslide<1-3>{\includemedia[width=5cm,height=2.5cm,activate=onclick,deactivate=pageclose] {\colorbox{white}{click}}{test.swf}} – Gonzalo Medina Aug 3 '14 at 2:02
• I just tried \onslides and the animation still looks like to reload after every item. – Since1996 Aug 3 '14 at 18:52
