I have never managed to play a video inside Skim (using the multimedia and similar packages) only in Acrobat, but am very interested as it is most impressive being able to play and control videos from inside the viewer.

Pascal Brabant reads in copy, he is interested in incorporating something like this into his new SlidePilot.

greetings, el
