I am on Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit and using Adobe Reader 9.

I am using LaTeX Beamer to create my slideshow. In Windows and MacOS I can open and play the embedded video in Adobe Reader. But I simply can't get it to work in Ubuntu. So right now I do all my stuff including make the presentations in Ubuntu, but then I have to boot to Windows to show it.

Here is a sample presentation. And a sample .MOV movie

Try installing ubuntu-restricted-extras?

Are you using Adobe Reader in Ubuntu too? – izx May 9 '12 at 10:14
Yes. I am using Adobe Reader in Ubuntu for slides. Because I can set Adobe Reader to show it external when clicked on in the slideshow through LaTeX Beamer. If there is no video I often use normal Document Viewer. – Bjarne May 9 '12 at 10:42
Please edit your answer with more details on how you create/encode the videos, etc. It may just be a codec issue. – izx May 9 '12 at 10:49
I use LaTeX Beamer class' \includemovie{} to include the .mov or .avi file in the document. – Bjarne May 9 '12 at 14:25
