I'm trying to make a pdf with videos for viewing on a Mac. I know how to do this on Linux, but have never tried viewing it on a Mac. Is there an easy way to embed the videos (I have them in any format needed), for instance media9, that will work without special players? I don't have a Mac to test this on, as it is for a presentation at a conference. I've looked at the old discussions on the topic of embedding multimedia, but as far as I've found they all concern viewing on Linux.
if you want to play a video in a pdf on a mac, it is quite easy.
There is a problem unfortunately the native app on a mac (preview.app) it is not capable on playing it. But if they allow you, you can download the adobe reader for mac and it will work.
The way to add the video is the same as you know you just only have to open it with adobe reader.
Hope this helps.
