    Embedding YouTube videos in Fixed Layout EPUP



      Using InDesign CC on my Windows PC to create a Fixed Layout EPUB, I embedded a Youtube video exactly in the way explained in the tutorial   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZz4LoJ2JpE


      just pasting the embed code
      <iframe width="853" height="480" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/JZz4LoJ2JpE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

      in the InDesign page.


      Previewing the EPUB fixed layout output before exporting to an EPUB file by selecting in the menu Windows > Interactive > EPUB Interactivity Preview  delivers the expected result: the video plays with sound.


      After exporting the document as EPUB(Fixed Layout) and opening the EPUB3-file with


      • Adobe Digital Editions V4.03 on my Windows PC the video plays with sound
      • ADE on my iPad the video plays without sound
      • Gitden Reader on my iPad the video plays without sound
      • iBooks on my iPad the video frame is not shown at all.


      hat do I have to do, that the video is played with sound also in the epub3 reader apps ADE(iOS) and Gitden? 

      What do I have to do for iBooks(iOS)?
