Join Brian Wood for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting advanced options, part of Acrobat 9 Pro: Creating Multimedia Projects.
After you've inserted a SWF file using the multimedia tool, the Flash tool, we…can set some advanced options.…We could have done this when we first put it in, but sometimes you don't know…exactly what you wanted to do.…So that's what we're going to do.…We've got this file here and we've got a simple SWF file up top, which is pretty…easily played by clicking on it, if you have the Hand tool selected.…Now what we're going to do is set the advanced options.…To do that, we need to select the SWF file and go to the Properties for it.…So if you come up to the toolbar, right- click or Ctrl-click and go to Advanced Editing.…You should see the Advanced Editing toolbar pop open, and we'll see the…Select Object tool.…
Go ahead and select that.…If you come to the SWF file itself, go ahead and either double-click on it or…you can right-click, Ctrl- click, and go to Properties.…Now, the reason why I'm telling you two different ways to do this is because if…you double-click on it sometimes you can accidentally move the movie, if it's…

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.
