Flash Player should not be required to play non-Flash video in PDFs
Currently Interactive PDFs exported from InDesign require Flash to be installed for videos to be viewed. This is true even when the video is an MP4, and when the settings in Acrobat are set so it uses the Windows/Mac native video player.
Non-Flash videos should not require a Flash player. The PDF 2.00 specification allows for media in Interactive PDFs... but with Flash going away in 2020 we need a solution to continue showing media files in PDFs.
Definitely agree, particularly as it does not mention it being a problem in the movies and sound help page here:
I completely agree... times a million.
