It very much depends on (1.) your operating system and (2.) the PDF
viewer. Adobe Reader on Windows (and the Mac probably) can display more
multimedia content than most PDF viewers on Linux (even Adobe when that
still existed for Linux).

On the other hand, I learned that pdfpc (https://pdfpc.github.io/)
worked surprisingly well on Linux at least with the companion package, 
https://www.ctan.org/pkg/pdfpc-movie. But this requires you to have
pdfpc installed on the presenting computer.
