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?
