CTAN Update: media9

Date: April 3, 2012 8:15:01 PM CEST
On Tue, 3 Apr 2012 Alexander Grahn submitted an update to the media9 package. Summary description: Multimedia inclusion package with AdobeReader-9/X compatibility License type: free Announcement text:
-- Media9 now features an enhanced version of open-source media player `StrobeMediaPlayback'. Differences to the original version on SourceForge.net are: * fix: video could not be restarted after end of playback if ActionScript variable `autoRewind' is set to `false' * new: first frame of video is shown as default poster instead of black stage * new: play/pause video by clicking on the stage (as with `VPlayer.swf'), useful in a lecture situation -- `flashvars' option now copes with embedded space characters in the argument string -- fix: `deactivate' option was not functional
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/media9 . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/media9 (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

media9 – Multimedia inclusion package with Adobe Reader-9/X compatibility

The package provides an interface to embed interactive Flash (SWF) and 3D objects (Adobe U3D & PRC), as well as video and sound files or streams in the popular MP4, FLV and MP3 formats into PDF documents with Acrobat-9/X compatibility. Playback of multimedia files uses the built-in Flash Player of Adobe Reader and does, therefore, not depend on external plug-ins. Flash Player supports the efficient H.264 codec for video compression.

The package is based on the RichMedia Annotation, an Adobe addition to the PDF specification. It replaces the now obsolete movie15 package.
