Via the multimedia package in beamer, I have included a movie in my slides.

This works fine if the pdf is openened in Adobe Pro DC, but unfortunately not with the free version of Acrobat Reader (there is a tool 'multimedia', but when clicking on it, I get redirected to the Adobe website for an upgrade to pro).

Are there other pdf-viewers that work fine for such movies, especially free ones?

I'm interested especially in something that works on Windows 10

  • Which operating system do you use (from mentioning Adobe Pro DC I am guessing it is either Windows or Mac, but not Linux)?

While not really being able to recognize the movie that was included using LaTeX, Foxit reader allows one to add a video after the pdf has been compiled, this seems to be a useful workaround.
