Making a PDF file launch videos
on Dec 27, 2005 at 5:35:16 am

I have a client who wants to put a PDF on a DVD and have certain points in the file that can be a "link" that the viewer can click on that will launch a video. Does anyone know how to go about doing that with a PDF file?

Thanks
David

I'm not an expert on this, but you can author a .pdf in Adobe Acrobat that can run Quicktime, Windows Media or MPEG movie. If you need to run parts of a DVD-Video from the .pdf file, that is quite another matter. You then need an application such as Macromedia Director, which allows you to place a DVD player app within a presentation.

You can go the other way, running a .pdf from a DVD-Video interface using eDVD 4.
