Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding video to the EPUB, part of InDesign CS6 to EPUB, Kindle, and iPad.
Getting a video and audio for that matter into your EPUB is quite simple with InDesign CS6.…Yay! You don't have to do anything special to the exported EPUB in order for you to see…the video and hear the audio in iBooks on the iPad.…For other devices, you might want to test it out.…For example, a lot of the Kindle solutions don't support video, maybe the device shows…it, but the software does not or vice-versa, so it's more of a crapshoot where that's concerned,…but if you're just trying to make rich media EPUBs to give away or sell on the iBook store,…then you're in luck.…
I have opened a one-page InDesign file, and I want to place a video in here.…Now the one thing that you want to do is make sure that your video is in the right format,…and that is H.264, that's the encoding, save as an MP4 or MV, as in Victor 4.…Now if you're like me, your camera saves videos as MOV files or maybe you have really old…other format videos. What do you do? How you convert your video to H.264?…Well, if you have InDesign, then you also have the Adobe Media Encoder, which I have queued up here.…
