Description Oliver Sander 2012-06-10 21:26:17 UTC
The LaTeX 'multimedia' package allows to embed movie files in pdf documents.  One of its option, viz. the 'poster' argument, requests that the first image of the movie be shown when the movie is not actually playing.  This does not work.  The movie plays when you click on it, but before the first frame is not shown.

Reproducible: Always

This patch implements the poster functionality for videos embedded in PDF files

The patch extends the VideoWidget to either show the actual video player and keep it hidden while not playing (in non-poster mode) or show an image of the first frame all the time and overlay it with the video player (in poster mode).

Can i convince you to put it up on reviewboard? Makes for so much easier reviewing :-)
