Hi all,

Does anyone know of any tool I can use, preferably with a designer like iReport that allows me to design a PDF, which will need to included not only images but also embeddeded video clips ?

I'm really struggling finding anything

Are you looking to do this from within a Java program, or are you just looking for a general purpose utility that you can install on your desktop?

I'm looking to generate PDF's dynamically. In the past i've used iReport to design a template, and use that template from within a servlet to create dynamic pdf's on a website.

But I never had to involve video's in PDF's.

In the full adobe acrobat you can embed video's into a PDF. when someone views the PDF, they can then click the video and it starts to play...
I agree. Here's the link:
