Yes, that has happened to me too when showing a PDF presentation on a  
Windows machine - and in situations like that, you don't usually have  
much time to investigate...

However, for videos, sounds and 3D graphics, Adobe Reader relies on  
external media players, which are system specific. So I think these  
kinds of failures can't be blamed on Adobe, but on the incompleteness  
of the platform-dependent movie player.
