This package defines \includemovie with PDF-1.5 compatibility.

Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/movie15/
Summary description: multimedia inclusion package
License type: lppl

Announcement text:
 1.) The image file argument of the `poster' option has become optional with this update. This new variant of the `poster' option causes the player plugin of Adobe Reader to show the very first frame of the movie or to show the frame at the beginning of a movie segment, which has been specified with the `startat' and `endat' options.
 2.) A new user macro has been added: \movieref
 It allows embedded movies and sounds to be referenced from any location within the document. `\movieref' creates a hyperlink to either stop, pause or resume the media, or to restart it at different settings, such as frame rate, volume and start/end positions. Furthermore, clicking the hyperlink opens the page containing the media it is pointing to.
 3.) Compatibility commands `\movie' and `\hyperlinkmovie' have been added such that `movie15' can be used as a replacement for Till Tantau's `multimedia' package, which is part of his Beamer-Class. The benefits are fully embeddable media files and more accepted media formats.

Thanks for the upload.
