g'day all

i am new to using pdf documents, i am studying webpage design and have been given an assignment on how far you can push pdf documents.

I have heard that you can use java scripting within a document and have seen somewhere on the net a page from a guy that has made a tic tac toe game within a pdf document. (Can anyone send me a link to that page if u have seen it)

So my questions that hopefully you experts out there can help me with are :

Can you put sound files within a pdf document?? and if so what sort of files wav, mp3 etc ??

Can you have film footage in a pdf document ?? and if so what sort avi, mpeg etc ?? and are you able to have a play, pause and stop buttons to stop and start the footage.

Can you use Flash files, or Director files within pdf's ??

and finally i have to give examples of each of these things so links to pages would be great, and if i cant find examples already i will then need to produce documents so any help on how to make these would be great too.
