Join Brian Wood for an in-depth discussion in this video Inserting Flash content with resources, part of Acrobat 9 Pro: Creating Multimedia Projects.
Suppose that you have a PDF and you have created some really cool Flash video…player with XML, Preloader, all these different things, and you want to…insert it into the PDF.…Well, if you have a SWF file that you have published, and you have got all these…pieces, ActionScript files, videos, etcetera, we can insert them using Acrobat 9…Pro and Pro Extended.…We can insert the SWF file, and that will embed it and allow it to play…natively, and we could also embed the resources.…So those are all the files that are dependent on the original.…They all need to be there to work.…
So I've got a folder opened here, I can see that I have got a SWF file, and this…SWF file is just a little video player that's got a playlist, and it's really…simple, but it requires this XML file, ActionScript, Skin, all these different…things to be able to play.…So as a matter of fact, I'll show you what it looks like.…I'll double-click, this is the published file from Flash, click on one of the…playlists over here it's feeding in as XML, it just plays a little Flash…

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.
