Upload videos in your flipbooks

Adding videos to your flipbooks has never been easier.

We know that using videos in your publication attracts and keeps readers engaged in a simple yet compelling way. This feature will likely bring you as much joy as it brings us.

With our Professional plan, you can upload videos directly from your device in our Design Studio. It is as simple as it gets. 

How to upload videos in your catalogs

To upload a video, you must enter the flipbook in the Design Studio, then click on the Uploads tab and click on Upload media. An overlay will open where you can search and select the video file you want to upload.

After the file is completely uploaded, you can drag and drop the video player on your page. An edit panel will open on the left side of the Design Studio, where you can set play options for the video.

Important: Videos set to autoplay in the edit panel are automatically muted in Design Studio due to browser limitations, whether uploaded or linked.


Once your flipbook is published, your readers can play the video on the page they are viewing. Below you can see an example:

Important: You can only upload videos in MP4 or GIF formats with a maximum size of 1 GB.

If you want to remove the media files you uploaded (images and videos) in your Flipsnack library, edit the cover, or download them, here's how you can do that. 

Simply click on the Uploads tab on the left side of the Design Studio, hover your mouse over the image or video you want to download or delete, then click on the 3 dots icon in the upper-right corner of the thumbnail and select the desired action. 

If you want to set a specific frame to be displayed in your library so you can recognize the video easier, just select Edit cover to change the thumbnail.
