Since Adobe will no longer be supporting Flash Player after December 31, 2020 and Adobe will block Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning January 12, 2021, Adobe strongly recommends all users immediately uninstall Flash Player to help protect their systems.
For more information, see Flash Player End of Life announcement.
Video files added to a presentation can appear directly on a slide or in the viewer sidebar. Slide video is easily integrated into existing slides or you can create a slide containing only the video file. Adding a video file as sidebar video is especially useful if you have video of a speaker. Video added to the sidebar appears in the location used for Adobe Presenter photographs. Only one video can be added to one slide area.
(For information about adding SWF files, see Add and manage SWF files in presentations
Video is added to each slide individually. If you need to use one sidebar video file for multiple slides, split the video into separate files.
Video file formats that can be imported are 3GP, F4V (never reencoded as On2 FLV), ASF, AVI, DV, DVI, MOV, MP4, MPEG, MPG, WMA, WMV, and FLV.
Adobe Presenter enables you to import multiple video file formats by reencoding them as On2 FLV files. The following formats can be converted: ASF, WMV, AVI, MPEG, MPE, M1V, M2V, MOD, MP2, MPV2, MP2V, MP4, DV, DVI, MOV, 3GP, 3GPP, 3GP2, and 3GPP2. The embedded files can be played on Flash Player 9 (in Adobe Presenter 7.0.7, the files can be played in Flash Player 9 or later).
H.264 files are not reencoded as FLV files because they are supported by Flash Player 126.96.36.199 or later. Files in AVI and MOV format that are H.264 encoded are not converted to FLV.
If you are importing a video that requires QuickTime for preview, using the Preview option might cause instability. (File types that use QuickTime for preview are MP4, DV, DVI, MOV, 3GP, 3GPP, 3GP2, 3GPP2, M4V, and F4V.)
H.264 is a video compression standard created to provide good video quality at a lower bit rate than other standards.
You can import H.264 video into Adobe Presenter. H.264 video requires Flash Player version 188.8.131.52. When the video is played back, Adobe Presenter checks for Flash Player version. If the installed Flash Player is older than version 9, an error message appears and the video does not play.
Some H.264 encoded video files may not be recognized by Adobe Presenter and are re-encoded to On2 VP6 codec to ensure proper playback in Flash Player.
After importing video files, you can edit the files if necessary.
