Insert Video or Animation in Presentation

Postby drSlump » Mon Feb 25, 2013 6:55 pm

Hi everyone.

I am a new user of this forum.

Since I don't have any experience making a presentation with LaTeX (I know that the beamer class exists), I was wondering if there exists any way to include in the presentation (consequently in the PDF file) a video and/or a VRML animation (I mean to be played during the presentation such as PPT does).

thax a lot to anyone! ;)

Welcome to the board.

I have never done this myself but maybe the media9 package is useful.

Section 14.1.1 of the beamer user guide describes the multimedia package which is shipped with the class bundle. Perhaps this is also worth a try.
