Can you embed video and a podcast on a page?

Recommended Posts

I'm creating a magazine that will be either published as pdf or a flipbook vis Issuu.

Can you actually embed video on a page, so when the reader opens the pdf he can stream the video onto the page?

What about a podcast player?

 

Thanks!

So this is something only Adobe InDesign can do...

No, other applications can as well. But I like how Bob Levine puts this issue:

My computer is a nothing-special Toshiba laptop with unremarkable specs running Windows 10 64-bit.

A good article, Mike. We really expect the pdf to leave our documents as we created them - with all the bad pdf Readers out there... 

At this time, I keep it to text and images.

Anything more is a risk. 

(I couldn't even change the title of the pdf, and my final draft reads "Attempt 7" on screen. Without Adobe Acrobat (I have the useless Pdf Expert) you can't do a thing about it)
