Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding video to the EPUB, part of InDesign CC 2015: EPUB Fundamentals.
- I've been doing this InDesign to EPUB course…since Cs4.…That's a bunch of versions ago.…And I have to tell you that…what gets easier and easier with every version…is how to embed video in your EPUB files.…Not only because InDesign has added features…that make it easier to bring in and manipulate video…in an InDesign file,…but also because the EPUB standard itself…has progressed to EPUB 3.0…and a pretty wide adoption of that standard…around the world…with e-reader devices and software.…
And the support for video and audio…within EPUB 3 is part and parcel…of the specification.…What we're going to bring into this layout…is this short movie that I made in Italy…when I was traveling there on business,…yes, business,…earlier this year…and notice that it's .MOV,…and this is right out of my iPhone,…and .MOV is a very common…video format.…Another video format that's supported…is .MP4.…As long as a video is encoded with…H.264…I know that's very geeky,…but it's a very common encoding for video…then it will work in EPUB 3.0.…
So I'm going to jump back…
