Embedding Video for Nook & Kindle


Hi, I am a writer who is trying to learn how to embed video to create "vook-like" offerings for the Kindle and Nook. The new Kindle publishing guide indicates that you can submit a EPUB to KindleGen with embedded video and it will work.

Has anyone done this? What video program can output video in the correct formats for Kindle (MP4 video w/MP3 audio - my Cyberlink Powerdirector does not seem to). Is there an easy tutorial of how to do this? I am not that technically proficient - my last book was done in Word and submitted directly to KDP and Nook self publishing sites.

Thanks for your help and advice!

For converting videos to Kindle fire, you should check the Kindle Fire support formats first:
Audio: AAC, MP3, MIDI, OGG, WAV,
Video: MP4, VP8

Best Kindle Fire video formats for playback:
Video Encoder: H.264, Audio Encoder: AAC
Resolution: 800*480 , Video Bitrate: 2500 kbps

And think maybe you could use this program to do the converting:
