# Embedding video in beamer using okular

I've read everything on this topic like this, this, this, this, etc.

All solutions are very old and I am not able to get them to work on my current system.

I am using:

• arch 4.19.4
• okular 1.5.3
• pdfTeX 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.19 (TeX Live 2018/Arch Linux)
• kpathsea version 6.3.0
• and I have installed the VLC phonen backend package phonon-qt5-vlc

Here is my minimal example .tex file:

\RequirePackage{flashmovie}
\documentclass[bookmarks=true]{beamer}
\usepackage{multimedia}
\begin{document}
Movie:
\movie[
height = 6cm,
width = 6cm,
showcontrols,
poster
]
{}{./Circle-m-increase3.mp4}
\end{document}


Using the .mp4 supplied from this example here. I am producing the PDF using pdflatex. After 4 years, do we finally have a working solution to this problem on Linux?
