Found a product that can do it: PDFTron's PDF CosEdit can extract the resources. I opened the a PDF with embedded Rich Media videos in CosEdit, then scrolled to the bottom (where the files with the largest Offset values were kept). For me, these were it. I extracted the resources, and they opened as MP4s. You might want to try MP4, SWF, etc. or inspect the resource's headers to help identify its type.
For a programmatic solution, they have other software as well, and they published this article which appears useful.
