Hi guys,

I have a PDF problem that can be solved in three steps. The first one is a must-have, the second a should-have and the third a nice2have:

I need to have a PDF that has a still picture on a page and as soon as you click on that pic (or a timeline at the bottom of the pic) a film should start.

But the film should not be included in the PDF. Instead it should just be a reference to a film, streamed from the net. But it should not open in an extra application or window, but in the same frame as we've seen the still image before.

If the streaming and playing succeeded the still-imgae thumb should appear again.
If not, it would be nice if there could be a message that it failed and after that jump back to the thumbnail.

Anyone has an idea or can tell me where there are good infos like that, how to create a PDF on the net?
I have Acrobat 6 Pro here, but also have access to Acrobat 8.

Thanks in advance for your help & all the best,
