video in epub

Ok, I have a novel I wrote and I have mp4 videos I would like to play at various places in the novel. Can I use sigil to insert the videos? If so how would I do that? Thanks so much in advance.

You'd probably have to use an <object> tag to embed the video, and provide a fallback item for it (something to render instead of the video, for systems that don't support the specific file type you use, which will be almost all for the moment). I have never used it, so I can't say for sure, but you can read the spec.

I wonder if having a link to a webpage with the video on it would be possible?
thanks,

It would be possible. Whether that works as one may expect or not, that's a different matter.

First, if the device has no network connectivity, it will obviously be a non-working link. Even for devices with connectivity, it would depend on how the reading software communicates with the internet browsing software (if any), and on any plugins or video support available.

In any case, providing the URL in text (hyperlinked or not) would always allow any user to copy it in a computer and view the video, if interested.

It might be accepted, but it won't conform to the ePUB specification, which doesn't list "<video>" as an accepted tag.

AND, based on experience (a LOT), I can tell you that when you try to upload it to Apple, as an itunespublisher, it fails. They send it back, even though they KNOW it's an enhanced ePUB, because of course they have a special channel for that, so THEN it has an itunesmetadataplist file jammed in the zip, so THEN you have to yank that OUT and send it back again. It's a circus.

And, no, it never passes ePUBcheck, and, FWIW, Sigil rips out the video tags.

I see 2 errors that need to be fixed to read (Red).
Sigil folder names Start with a Uppercase Letter
If the video is in Misc, the the src= must include that piece of information

You cannot add video with Sigil out of the box, since video is not supported in the ePUB specs. Only Apple in their crippled adaption of ePUB supports it.

This makes sense to me (Thank you), but can't run the video still...
If the Sigil can't contains the video, is there any other epub software can
contains the video?

Galapagos, the ebook reader device made by SHARP showed
a few ebooks which contains video, like Apple sampler.
These are not epub, but XMDF format. (which is very local system)

Just because you can't See(watch) the Video in Sigil, does not mean that you can't create the document? (still cringing: Video in books )
