Hi guys,

Its a epub book file which works perfectly on iTunes store and up there now
but my boss wants me to upload a sample file which is 22mb with a video in it to kindle but it doesn't seem to upload

ePub does not (officially) support video, and the Kindle does not support ePub, so it's not surprising it doesn't work.

Kindle does support epub now. the only problem is that it is a regular file with out the video embedded.

Kindle doesn't support ePub, and currently only the iOS Kindle app supports video embedding in Kindle format.

If you are trying to use kindlegen or Kindle Previewer or the KDP service to convert ePub to .azw, which often works, it is quite possible that those tools will not convert the iBooks ePub video embedding directly, since it is not standard ePub (yet). You might have to do the conversion 'by hand' as it were by extracting the source files and tweaking them into a more compatible form, which is to say into Mobipocket XHTML dialect with the video tagging that is supported for Kindle.

I believe the previous poster meant that the Kindle Digital Publishing service will accept ePub files as input. They do of course get converted to Mobipocket format.
