Adding video to your flipbook

Supported Video Formats:

Video encoding

Our general recommendation is to use (see guide) or Adobe Media Encoder CS5 which is a video encoding application that lets you encode audio and video in a variety of distribution formats.


H.264 video (MP4) encoded with the H.264 (MPEG-4) codec

We recommend the MP4 format, as it is supported by all devices (computer, tablet &  mobile).
The FLV and F4V formats are only supported by our desktop client.

Bitrate, framerate, and resolution:

It is difficult to give clear-cut guidance on which bitrate, framerate, and resolution you should use, as it depends on the content of your video. Therefore we recommend you to feel your way at the beginning. For example, would a video containing fewer movements, say an interview with few objects moving, be able to be encoded with a relatively low framerate, due to the low number of changes from frame to frame. On the contrary, a highly active scenery with a lot of movement would need a higher framerate.

Please note that the maximum allowed filesize in the iPaper library is 300MB!
