Try asking in the subforum for the relevant ebook format (I'm guessing it's ePub). Though from what I know, audio/video isn't ordinarily a part of any ebook file specification.

My 2 cents.
What he wants is called a Web Page or a Flash app.

An ePUB is mainly a specific subset of (x)HTML/CSS in a (zip) wrapper

EBOOK readers don't do motion ( I will use the same kind of assumption the O/P did. Mine has e-ink. Mine is the ONLY type of display. Mine only does TTS from the displayed page, not from a embedded MP3.) the current EPUB encompasses the SUBSET of capabilities of the readers in the market.

How? Did you embed an MP4 movie and were able to play it on your reader?

Question

Hi Hard13 Manichean pointed me to this thread. I've tried for ages to get the same thing done. Embed a video in an epub to read on ipad and can't figure it out . Could you please tell me how it's done.

Many thanks
Jason

I recommend that you read through Liz Castro's blog and get her book on epub which you will find there. She has been trying to work with iBooks for some time now, and shares what she discovers.

Not so bad for a children's book.

even worse IMHO - how do you want them to learn reading actually if they got it ALL done?
no motivation to mind about the funny glyphs - just push the triangle button

Don't even mention using you imagination... That's part of the fun, seeing what you read in your mind...
