Join Brian Wood for an in-depth discussion in this video Button extras, part of Acrobat 9 Pro: Creating Multimedia Projects.
So I'd like to show you just kind of how far we can take buttons, just to get you…thinking about all the different uses for buttons.…I've got a document open here. What we are going to do is we are going to create…a button that covers most of the page, and we are going to make it so that we…give people a message before they start looking at the PDF.…I've actually had this before where I do an Auto Run CD or something like that…and I say for help or more information, contact us at blah or…you need a certain version of Reader to work with this best, things like that.…
So I'm going to show you how we can set that up.…So I've got the Advanced Editing toolbar open, just under the Tools menu, and…we're going to create a button.…So I'll click on the Button tool here. I'll come out to the page and I'm just…going to simply click to create the button, and we'll just call this cover as a name.…Now, we can resize it if we want to, by grabbing a corner.

I get error page when typing in this address. Do you have the correct URL?
Q: In the Acrobat 9 Pro: Creating Multimedia Projects title, the author adds video controls by adding "skins" to the SWF videos in the PDF. It appears he does this by using the Resources tab in Flash preferences. When trying to duplicate the author’s method, however, the SWFs plays endlessly (loops), unless you right-click and choose Stop from the contextual menu. Is there a tutorial that specifically walks through getting the skins and using them to add the video controls?
A: Skins can be inserted if the file is converted to FLV when adding video into Acrobat Pro Extended. This is detailed in the Chapter 4 video "Converting to FLV.” Otherwise, the skin can be added in Flash before adding the video to Acrobat. Check out the "Working with Video" chapter in Flash CS5 Essential Training.
