I was wondering...

I know multimedia elements are possible in he .epub format. But is it possible to pull the content from online?

Say I wanted to include a flash video of an interview of the author but donīt want to have the actual file in the package. Is it possible to embed it as an external link?

I know. "But then you would have to be online to watch it and it wouldnīt work with hardware readers". True but the hardware readers on the marked today canīt display it anyway.

So, doable?

Read the last two comments here, I think this is what you are asking?:
