This does not work in ADE 1.8.3. It does work in ADE 1.7.2.

Does it mean the structure and basic setup files have changed? Even though my stories are just text + pictures, I plan to follow the latest specifications, ie ePub3.

Since it sounds like your eBooks won't be needing any of the features that ePub 3 has that ePub does not, you'd be crazy to go ePub 3 instead of ePub. You would be limiting comparability tremendously as all stand alone readers are ePub and most apps are ePub. There really isn't ePub 3 yet.

Please read those and look at the site of Liz Castro. She has some example ePUB's in ePUB3 format.

AFAIK, no one has made an easy manual to understand for epub3. Information on everything about epub 3 is in http://idpf.org/epub/30 link to epub3 specs by IDPF. There are also sample epub3 there.

I'm still in the learning stage on how to produce ebooks. I need to learn the structure, setup files, etc. and then write a program to convert my HTML-based stories automatically to ebooks. I thought by the time I start producing ebooks, ePub3 will be more widely accepted. That's why I want to start from the latest specifications. However, it appears from what you said that ePub3 won't be widely available for quite a while.

I don't expect too, only for niche products. To be honest, ePUB3 has some benefits for certain types of books like academical books, cookbooks and children's books.
For the majority of books it will not bring an improvement. Since all ePUB3 readers are required to also support ePUB2, there are no objections in using ePUB2 when possible.

Like I said before, read the specifications on the site of the IDPF or on the wiki pages of this site.

I think that's a bit rough, Jon. He's obviously a beginner out of his depth, and his command of English is not good.

I can remember how easy it was to become discouraged when I was first beginning and was struggling, and that I found supportive comments more helpful than put downs.

In any event I have searched the pigsgourdsandwikis site, and was unable to find downloadable examples of ePubs with audio and video. They are available in the mini-guide.

In all fairness, AlexBell, I am not Jon. I know JSWolf can have strong opinions, but this is not coming from him.

I know he is a beginner, but he excels in short messages with a very low level of information. The first action anybody should undertake when they have a question or problem, is to look for a solution before asking it. It will either provide you with the answer or help you formulate the question better. Just asking has no value and no learning potential.
If you are beginning in ePUB, the first thing you need to do is read up about the format. On of the first stops would be the IDPF. You need to learn how to walk before you start running...

Back to topic, Liz has various links in her blog posts to ePUB3 examples. They contain various examples, including audio/video.
On the other hand, even searching on this forum will give examples. Not a lot, but they are there.

Thanks, again Toxaris, and I apologise to you and JSWolf for mistaking the poster.

I think we may have to agree to disagree, not so much about the quality of me too's posts but about how to get him to do better. For what it is worth I think it would have been more effective to respond by something like 'Perhaps you could google her; I found her at ....'
