Video in PDF issue - Help!

I'm making a full screen PDF presentation with MP4 video in it and having a couple of issues with the PDF afterwards. When you get to the page with the video on the keyboard left/right arrow navigation stops working. You can progress with the mouse as long as the video is not full screen i.e. as long as you have some area to right/left click on which is not the video area. Also (and this is the biggie) there is a stitching type line left on the following page in the place of where the video was on the previous page.

So far everything has been compiled in InDesign and exported from there. We're viewing on acrobat 9 and above. The video files are linked fine to the PDF and are H.264.

Has anyone had this issue when putting video in a PDF?

Dropbox = GDrive

Dropbox just announced that the 9.99$/month plan with 100Gb of storage will now have 1Tb of storage.

That means Dropbox equals Google Drive who is offering the same plan; 9.99$ for 1Tb

They also announced many new features, info over there: http://mashable.com/2014/08/27/d…

I know there's often question about those services on QBN. So now you're up to date.

I was on Dropbox before but I switched to GDrive when they announced the 1Tb for 9.99$ plan a few months ago. I think I will go back to Dropbox, i always liked DB better.

Monitor Glare

Just moved into a new office space. Tons of lovely natural light, but now the glare on the monitors is killing everyone. Short of moving or installing shades, has anyone had the same issue and if so, how did you deal with it?

xbox - One or 360?

My son is wanting an xbox for his birthday. He said to me he's happy to get a 360 but I'm just wondering if that is OK or not? I don't follow gaming at all so I have no idea whether 360 is ancient outdated technology or not...

Any assistance greatly appreciated!

Agile Billing...

As we are moving into larger projects - estimating becomes more fuzzy and defining all the requirements up front is often unrealistic - so we are looking at other options for managing cash flow during development.

So I am wondering if anyone in the community is using agile billing for development projects (basically the client buys a sprint (or more) at a time - so 2 weeks or 4 weeks, etc. see http://www.smashingmagazine.com/… for an example), and if so how is it working out?

Any advice or issues you had in implementing such a strategy? I would suspect that some client education would be necessary - and I am thinking about different ways to sell the benefits of the strategy to both parties.

Kids in NYC?

Is it possible to raise kids in NYC?

There's such a wealth of culture and educational experiences, but the rents are so high and space is limited. How do people actually afford enough space and have enough spare cash to live life comfortably?

Painting before year 1800

I'm looking for big database of images of renaissance painting, and any other old painting. Stuff before 1800. Post your links and/or images.

Working Interview

So I just finished an interview for ad agency in NY.
The position is for Senior Designer, the interview went great, it was actually a great talk the atmosphere was really flowing and they liked what they saw.

So I just checked my e-mail and found out they want me to come back to do a "sort of working interview. This way we can get a feel if we would be a good fit for each other" <- exact words.

Now, I've never done anything like this before and it sounds not professional. But, what do you guys think? Is this something normal you get asked every now and then? They seem to like what I asked for salary. Please share any thoughts.

browser problem

This just started today. In google chrome everything is gigantic. And you would think its just the browser zoom, but nope, it's set to 100%, so something else is off. Any clues?

Template ID

I have an ex-client from my former agency who has approached me to help him with a problem he is having with said former agency. The agency just put him over the barrel for a $10k+ website in 8 months, and he's pretty sure this is a template (and I can't disagree). I'm trying to help him track down the template this might be. They didn't send a live link, just a flat graphic, so I assume they just Firebugged the template demo site and screen grabbed it, thus making it hard to use a template sniffing tool.

It screams template to me, do you agree? Any luck from the QBN team?
