How to Embed a Video in a PDF File

Last Updated on October 27, 2020 by BrodNeil

The first method is to use Acrobat PRO: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/adding-multimedia-pdfs.html. Some people may like to start with the use of a Word Document, yet ultimately one may need to use Acrobat’s rich media tools to add the media file or video in the PDF file.

The second method is to use Google docs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6M8WSTkEns. However, this normally works with YouTube videos only.

If you are not lucky enough to make use of both methods above, you may try the alternative suggestion of uploading the video on an online service and leaving a link to the video on your PDF file: https://wordribbon.tips.net/T007888_Embedded_MP4_Files_in_a_PDF_Document.html

  2. to really make changes to a PDF, you need something more advanced. PDF converter tools that allows you to add watermarks on your file, modify the text, e-sign documents, create new text, and most especially, converting files from Doc to PDF, XLS to PDF, PPT to PDF, or vice versa.
