Did you know our tool allows you to add audio and videos to your flipbook? Keep reading to find out how.
How to add music and audio files to catalogs
To add audio to your flipbook, open the flipbook in the editor, then click on the Video tab and select Audio.
An Upload MP3 button will appear at the top of the editor which, when clicked, opens an overlay where you can search and select the audio file you want to upload.
Simply click on the audio button when reading the flipbook to play or pause it or flip the page to stop it.
This feature can be very useful in creating interactive audiobooks for children. It is also great for adding music, an interview in audio format, a podcast, the audio version of a book, or for word pronunciation examples.
Important: An audio file must not exceed 20 MB.
How to insert videos in catalogs
Videos are great for boosting engagement and click rates in your online magazines, so we encourage you to use them.
For videos you have 2 options.
In the Video tab you can choose the Video or the Video widget option.
The Video button adds a play button on your page to which you can link a YouTube, Vimeo or self-hosted video.
When readers click on this button, an overlay displaying the video will open so they will view it without leaving the page. You can even select the size of the overlay by clicking the 3 dots at the top of the editor.
The Video widget button adds a video player on your page which allows your readers to watch the YouTube, Vimeo or your self-hosted video play on the flipbook page they are currently reading.
Just click on the Links button at the top of the editor and paste the URL of the video.
