On the poppler compilation: is it enabled if the proper libraries are found or must it be enabled as a compilation option?

It doesn't work yet. It's just in there to show good will.

Poppler seems to support embedded multimedia objects in PDF documents. Would it be possible to improve this in pdf2swf?

Maybe- you mean Javascript, U3D and stuff?

I would like to have it to have mainly movies in PDF presentations that have them. Otherwise it seems to be extremely complicated to have movies in the final PDF.

I'm not entirely sure about the whole Poppler<->xpdf forking thing.
poppler seems to be very active, and I haven't heard from Derek
(the xpdf author) for quite some time. On the other hand, the
poppler guys still refer to xpdf as "upstream" and incorporate fixes.
Last time I looked, they were also seriously lacking support for
advanced things like transparency groups. Anyway, I don't want to
switch to poppler just so that suddenly a new xpdf is released which can do more things than the poppler version I just switched to.

Switching is not necessary. Wouldn't it be possible to use poppler in the features that xpdf doesn't support?
