swf-files in ePub

Hallo,

is there any chance to integrate swf-files into an ePub-Dokument (created via Callibre from an HMTL-Source).

Thanks,

Michael

You could embed an swf into the ePub but it wouldn't make much sense because Flash isn't a core media type for ePub and you would have to provide a fallback.

You can do it, you just can't expect ePUB readers to support it, because the ePUB spec does not require them to do it (as if requiring was a guaranty for anything ). What I'd do, if I had to include some audio/video content, is provide, as a fallback, a page saying "The reading software does not support playing audio/video files, But you can watch/listen to this content in http://whatever" (that is, if nothing better is possible). That way, in the event some reader supports this, it will be played, but other readers will always have somethin useful instead.

If and when ePub will be extended I hope they will only go with standard formats, like HTML5, SVG animation and MP4.

Here's a link where you can find instructions for using SWF and fallback images in EPUB:
