Embed a video file into a word document to convert to PDF. The best use for this is to put video files into ebooks. Its really cool. In the video I have used word 2007 and a full version of Adobe acrobat reader…unfortunately not the free version…
What do you think? Has anyone tried this?
I will add soon a tutorial on how to perform the same task using Open Office Writer. The beauty of using Open Office Writer to achieve this is that you are dispensing with the need to use either Word2007 or AdobePDF, which both cost money. Open Office, because it can export to PDF, can perform all of this without the need for any commercial (paid) software. Open Office is free.There are times when you will find Word or Adobe more adept at performing various functions, but for stuff like this, the totally free Open Office suite will be more than adequate. Also coming soon will be a comprehensive direct comparison between MS Word and Open Office Writer, pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of both applications.

Further to this subject, I have been experimenting. I confess to being new to Open Office, having had a copy of MS Office 2003

My next question is does it transfer the html links to the pdf???? It does the video to pdf but do the links still work also??? And is there any size limit to making the pdf???? This is just fantastic if it is all for free
My problem is that when i open my trial version of ms office pro, and use word, I go to the INSERT tab and scroll to the right, but there is no EMBED VIDEO tab.. although I see all the others.. Can anyone tell me why this is? Thanks
Sorry I don't know about the trial version. Let me look into it.
