C. Edit Rendition – When clicking the Edit Rendition button, the Rendition Settings dialog box
appears, which allows you to specify the playback location, and other settings to differentiate
it from other renditions.
Media Settings -- Specifies the general properties for the movie or sound clip:
Rendition Name: Enter the name for the rendition, which will appear in the list of renditions.
(This name does not determine which media file is played.)
Media Clip Location: Specify the clip by typing or navigating to it.
Content Type: This will be selected automatically when you specify the clip location.
Changing the Content Type setting may cause problems in playing the media.
Embed content in document: Includes the media file into the PDF file. This option will
increase the file size of the PDF. It is selected by default. If the check box is cleared, you will
not be able to play it if you open this PDF file on other computers.
Rendition Alternate Text: Type a description of the rendition.
Allow Temp File: Specify whether writing a temp file is allowed and when. Some media
players write a temp file when they play a movie or sound clip. If you want to prevent users
from easily copying the media content in a secure document, you may want to disallow the
creation of temp files. However, selecting this setting may prevent the movie from being
played by media players that require the use of temp files.
Playback Settings – Use this tab to determine how the movie or sound clip is played.
Keep Player Open: Select whether you want the player to close after it plays the movie or
Volume: Lets you specify how loud the movie will be played.

Repeat: Lets you replay a clip two or more times, or continuously.
Player List: Click Add to specify a player and the settings that are required, preferred, or
disallowed to play the movie or sound clip. Select the name of the player and the status. If
you set the status of more than one player to Required, only one of the required players may
be used to play the rendition. If you set the status of players to Preferred, these players are
selected over nonpreferred players (but not over required players). If you set the status of
players to Disallowed, they are not used to play the rendition.
Add/Edit/Delete button: Allows you to add a new player, as well as edit or delete the
selected player in the Player List.

while played (recommended for sound clips), is played in a floating window, or is played full screen.
