add_filter('media_send_to_editor', 'my_filter_pdf', 20, 3);
function my_filter_pdf($html, $id) {
$attachment = get_post($id); //fetching attachment by $id passed through
$mime_type = $attachment->post_mime_type; //getting the mime-type
if ($mime_type == 'application/pdf') { //checking mime-type
$src = wp_get_attachment_url( $id );
$html = '<iframe width="500" height="500" src="'.$src.'"></iframe>';
return $html; // return new $html
return $html;

your function closes too early...

    return $html; // return new $html

should read:

    return $html; // return new $html

Thanks, had not noticed.
