First, movie15 does not require anything beyond TeX to be produced.

Second, movie15 does not require AA to be parsed with all its content;
Adobe Reader is sufficient and the last time I checked it was free. Or
someone sells it in Europe now?

Third, it looks like media9 requires Adobe Reader 9+ to be parsed,
while movie15 require 7+ (7.1.4+? for 3D content), Solaris Sparc has
only AR 8+.

Anyway media9 is not backward compatible (checked).

Can TL restore movie15?
