Can you please clarify what framework you are using e.g. “Flutter” or “Xamarin”?

We are using native Android and IOS.

Hi there,

Could you let us know if you are trying to play a video that is embedded in the document or are you trying to play an mp4 video with the document?
Would it be possible to get a sample file for reference?

Best Regards,

can we play mp4 video directly without embedded in the document ?


Unfortunately playing audio or video directly without a PDF document is not supported in our native mobile SDKs.


Is there any other way we can play a video using PDFTron other than native sdk?

Hi there,

This is possible if you are using the PDFTron WebViewer Media Product.
Please see the demo here.
