Sorry for posting this, but I got 1 day left and literally the only thing I have to do is fix a video, so I can play it through PDF. I'm kinda panicking right now, so I will go straight to the problem:

The way I embed the video in my beamer presentation is through this:

        \begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay]
            \node[at=(current page.center)] {

It compiles perfectly, but when I try to open it through PDF, it pops up my Media Player, while I want it to play through the PDF. (Will only share my PDF in Zoom.)

I have tried a gazillion solutions I found online, most of them are not supported due to Flash Player, and others have similar or worse problems.

Any clue? I don't know if I'm in time to make it all over to Power Point.

    Is this code based (uses) on the media9 package as the tag suggests? Because I do not find externalviewer in the media9 manual (ctan.org/pkg/media9). Update: I see, this is part of the multimedia package that comes with beamer. Jul 6, 2021 at 3:36
  • Yeah I have inserted both packaged. Thin I can't get it done. I'm trying now to transfer it to PPT.
