    If you mean Microsoft Word 2011 for Mac than try dragging your file onto the document. (Drag 'n Drop is a feature of Office 2011 for Mac.)

     

    Alternatively, go to the Insert menu and select Audio or Movie (depending on what type of file your mpg is).

    From the submenu, select "Audio from File" or "Movie from File," respectively. Find your mpg file and click the Choose button.

    The file should show on your document page, which you can then drag to the specific location you desire.

    Hi Dimaxum,

     

    When I add a movie with the extension MPG-4 the only thing I see is a Picture without the frame.

    What "frame?" In MS Word, double click on the "Picture" and the player controls will show and the movie automatically plays.

     

    When I do SAVE AS ... in PDF I see only a Picture of the inserted movie ... without the movie frame so that you play it.

    I have not done what you desire however I did a test and got similar results, i.e., picture of the movie only. One way to get the movie is to added it to the PDF using the Acrobat >Multimedia >Add Video tool. Once the tool is selected, draw a frame using the "picture" as a guide. The Insert Video window will popup for you to choose your movie document. Check the box next to "Advanced Options" to set when it plays.

     

    The Microsoft Community might have a simple method to do what you desire.

     

    Hope this helps and Good Luck!
