Can the movie15 package work with Silverlight application?

Silverlight is a browser plugin or application similar to Adobe Flash.

  • @Herbert: There is a good example of Silverlight here memorabilia.hardrock.com. But please make sure you have Silverlight player (like Flash player) installed. – xport Jan 13 '11 at 8:48

No. Movie15 uses the Adobe object embedding representation for PDFs, called Rich Media Annotations, which does not handle Silverlight. That might change.


  1. PDF Reference and Adobe Extensions to the PDF Specification — Extension level 3 contains the Rich Media Annotations;
  2. Rich media annotations and AcroFLeX, D.P. Story, TUG Boat 2009;
  3. Inserting rich media into PDF documents - Brief introduction by Adobe.
