But they all support objcompression (which is the main point of the discussion).

movie15 uses features of PDF1.6 (and flashmovie from PDF1.7 optional
extentions), even though it doesn't change the \pdfminorversion,
that's the problem. I sent a bugreport, but they didn't change

>  texdoc miocrotype

This is strange, Adobe Reader 6 which is said to support PDF 1.5
doesn't read it... I think it has some PDF1.5 optional extentions in

Anyway let's keep talking about the widely supported features of
PDF1.5, talking about the extentions makes no sense here.

Thank you,
