I am using the media9 package to embed a .mp4 video in my beamer presentation. I am using the following lines:

\includemedia[
addresource=animate.mp4,
activate=pageopen,
width=250pt,height=250pt,
flashvars={
    source=animate.mp4,
    &loop=true % loop video
    &scaleMode=letterbox % preserve aspect ratio while scaling the video
}]{}{StrobeMediaPlayback.swf}

However with this when I open the .pdf it says on the video page that:

We are unable to connect to the content you have requested

If I use VPlayer.swf then it says:

Unable to play animate.mp4

I am using Adobe Reader 11.

flashvars={
     src=animate.mp4
    &loop=true
    ...

Strobe uses the src FlashVar for setting the video source, see Table 7 of the documentation. Moreover, remove the comma after the file name.
