    1st This looks more than a Foxit Reader problem rather than a LaTeX problem. 2nd Have you tried Adobe Reader? – Dr. Manuel Kuehner Jan 1 '17 at 2:35
  • @Dr.ManuelKuehner Yes, however it cannot work either. My question then should be is my code correct? I mean does it work in your or others' computer? I have only one computer. – sleeve chen Jan 1 '17 at 2:37
  • See tex.stackexchange.com/a/321572/36296 how to configure foxit. "[...] you may need to mark the document file/folder as trusted in Preferences > Security and make sure that javascript is enabled in Preferences > Trust Manager." – user36296 Jan 1 '17 at 12:33
  • It should work with media9, see tex.stackexchange.com/a/345433/36296 – user36296 Jan 1 '17 at 12:37
