  • It clearly seems that the video was not embedded in the PDF file. It will work if you put the Hero.mp4 file along with the PDF file. – Zoxume Mar 21 '16 at 11:39
  • sorry but I didn't understand, what do you mean by along with the pdf file, in the tutorial I saw, he just put the video on the same folder latex file then add the code and it's working, I did the same – Hind Dev Mar 21 '16 at 11:43
  • You mean that D:\INFO\Latex\testAnimation\Hero.mp4 exists and that the PDF file is in D:\INFO\Latex\testAnimation? – Zoxume Mar 21 '16 at 12:20
  • of corse, I've added a screenshot of my folder – Hind Dev Mar 21 '16 at 12:52
  • Well, it’s strange. If you create another beamer presentation in a different folder with a different video, does it work? – Zoxume Mar 21 '16 at 12:54

Package multimedia implements the Movie annotation of the PDF specification. Acrobat (Reader) does not support MP4 playback in a Movie annotation. For MP4 content, use the media9 package. See https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/102600 .

  • I received an error, it said in file media9.sty line 342 – Hind Dev Mar 21 '16 at 16:45

    @HindDev : Without a complete, compilable example it is impossible to sort out the error. – AlexG Mar 21 '16 at 20:24
  • I'll add a photo of the compiling problem – Hind Dev Mar 21 '16 at 20:36
  • @HindDev have you installed the missing package? – daleif Mar 21 '16 at 21:21

    If you have an up-to-date TeX installation, such as TeX-Live, all necessary ingredients are there to compile the example in the linked answer. – AlexG Mar 22 '16 at 7:26
