Add audio , video and interactive objects to PDF files

  • Open the PDF.
  • Choose Tools > Rich Media, and then select the Add Video , the Add Sound  , or the Add SWF  tool.

  • Drag or double-click to select the area on the page where you want the video or sound to appear. The Insert dialog box opens.

    If you double-click the page, Acrobat Pro DC places the upper-left corner of the video where you clicked. If you drag an area on the page, the media is placed within the area. The play area of the video is the exact size of the video frame (if Acrobat Pro DC is able to read the video clip dimensions).

  • Add a URL in the Name field, or click Browse to find the media file, and then click Open.

    For URLs, use the full file address, including the video filename extension, such as .mov or .mp4.

  • Use the advanced options on the Insert dialog box to change the media if needed, and then click OK.

    Not all of these options are available for all media types.

    Snap To Content Proportions

    Ensures that the play area retains the height and width ratios of the original video or interactive content.

    Show Advanced Options

    Opens the dialog for additional settings such as launch settings, playback controls, and video settings. The options available depends on the format of the media you are inserting.

Word and PowerPoint files (Acrobat Pro) 

Acrobat Pro DC adds a feature to Word and PowerPoint that enables you to add video in movmp3, or SWF format to a Word or PowerPoint document.

After adding a video to a Word or PowerPoint document, you can convert the document to PDF and edit the video properties if needed.

  • In the Word or PowerPoint document, select the position where you want the video to appear.
  • Do one of the following:

    • In Office 2003, click the Embed Flash button in the PDFMaker toolbar.
    • In Office 2007/2010, click the Embed Flash button in the Acrobat ribbon.
  • Click the Browse button, and then locate the video you want to include.

  • Change the video settings as needed:

    • For video that is not in SWF format, set a poster image by moving the slider to the desired frame. Then click Set Poster Image From Current Frame.
    • To determine how the playback controls are displayed, select an option from the Skin menu.
    • To change the display size of the video, click Resize Video, and then change the width and height. Maintain the aspect ratio for best display.
  • Click OK to convert the video (if needed), and add it to the document.
