Embedding movies

"multimedia" works for me very well.

You need to include


in the Preamble and then some centered ERT will do nicely

\movie[width=10cm, height=7cm, showcontrols{%
	\includegraphics[width=10cm, height=7cm]{%

Needs to be presented with Acrobat, and it will ask for some permission
stuff the first time, which you don't see in full screen, so you must
remember to escape full screen, give the permission and return to full

I didn't try AVI but MP4 does not work, so conversion to MOV is

Once the learning curve has flattened, this is trivial and works well.
