Adding Audio and Video to PDFs

The advantages of placing a video or audio file in a PDF document is that Acrobat reduces the file size, and converts the file to a format that can be played in Adobe Reader without any additional software.

PDFs can include Flash, QuickTime, MP3, MPEG, and Windows Media files, among others. You can play these files directly from the page or activate them from a link or a bookmark. Each multimedia file includes a play area from which you can activate the media. The play area typically appears on the PDF page as an image or a rectangle.

Review the video then move on to the below listed tutorials for assistance with adding multimedia to PDF documents or portfolios.
