Question: Our site has links to a lot of PDF. But most of our users don't have PDF plug-in installed. So they couldn't see any of these files.Installing PDF plug-in for the browsers in their machines has been ruled out. we don't know why, but it might be some security reasons. We have been asked to convert the entire list of PDF to look-alike HTML.Now I am looking for an option that perfectly convert PDF to flash and then they can view PDF in the form of flash. Is there such application on VeryDOC?
Answer: When you need to display PDF in browser without Acrobat plug-in installed, maybe you can try to embed PDF to HTML code trough iframe code. By that method, you can directly view PDF within browser without any third party application installed. If you feel this method is accessible, maybe you can use VeryPDF Document Viewer to make it. However, if you feel converting PDF to flash is the method to figure out this problem please use VeryDOC PDF to Flash Converter, by which you can convert PDF files to Flash files quickly and create high quality and scaleable Flash files from PDF files.
