  2. Sean Kelly Says:

    YouYube changed their API and we had to update PdfPrinterPro to match their change. It should work for you now. Thanks.

    Hi Sean,
    Could you please send the URL of the page where I can create a Youtube swf file? I cant find the URL

    Hi again Yousef :)

    The Flash player that streams your content from YouTube, here it is:

    Can Vimeo videos be used in the video streamer tool above?

  6. Sean Kelly Says:

    Hi Kari,

    Adobe flash has a 'feature' where it checks for a file named crossdomain.xml on any remote site it streams videos from.
    That file contains details about what flash players are permitted to do when streaming videos remotely.

    For example, YouTube.com's crossdomain.xml permits our flash player to load their videos:

    <allow-access-from domain="*.youtube.com"/>
    <allow-access-from domain="s.ytimg.com"/>

    The issue is that vimeo's crossdoman.xml file does not permit flash players to remotely load their videos:

    <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="by-content-type" />
    <allow-access-from domain="none" secure="true" />
    <allow-http-request-headers-from domain="none" headers="" secure="true" />

    So to answer your question, our flash player would be able to display the vimeo videos but vimeo don't allow this.

    This is set by vimeo in the following line in their crossdomain.xml file in the root of vimeo.com:

    allow-access-from domain="none"

    Hi Sean,
    I've had PDF Printer Pro for a couple of weeks now and I'm really happy with it. My only issue is I have clients that want me to embed a You Tube stream into the PDF. I used your flash player provided but it never would work. I sent a ticket in through your Help Center and was told that embedding YouTube streams is no longer possible. Is this permanent?
    Thank you,
    C.S. Alexander

    Yes a few months ago YouTube changed their API and we had to adapt PDF Printer Pro accordingly.
    This meant that the PDFs that were being created would no longer stream videos from Youtube however we updated PDF Printer Pro as soon as we found out and everything is working again. I think in total we got the new version out about 2 to 3 days after the youtube change was made. If your PDFs won't stream youtube videos it's very possible that you simply need to upgrade your copy of PDF Printer Pro (for free of course) to the version that has this youtube fix in it.
    Just drop us a note at the helpdesk :)

    I'm very interested in this product. Please could you tell me if I can embed several videos in a PDF using this software (upto 30)? Also, would they be playable just like a youtube video (i.e by pressing the play button) Many thanks

    Hi Rob,

    Yes you can embed as many videos as you like inside your document, we do not impose any limits.
