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.
