I know this was asked before, and the solution was y4pdf, however my question is: do we just compile our latex file with pdfLaTeX or how then?

Because the question was asked over a year ago, are pdf viewers up to speed on this?

    With package media9 you can use any of latex+dvips+ps2pdf, pdflatex, latex+dvipdfmx, xelatex

The 'best of bred' package for including videos into PDFs using LaTeX is currently media9. This uses extensions to the PDF format which are available in Adobe Reader and are of limited availability in other viewers. The older movie15, by the same author, uses a different approach to including videos, but support for this is also viewer-dependent. Thus it is important to check that the target viewer will display the video.
