Playing around with ePub ebooks particularly embedding audio/video in ePubs.
I've seen a number of examples that show embedding/playing a swf file in an epub and it plays ok in ADE.
However, I'd like to be able to embed a media player e.g. StrobeMediaPlayback.swf or JW Player and a media file and have the player play back the embedded media file.
When I try this the player shows up but it will not play the file.
I've included references to the swf and media files in the ePub manifest.
Here is an example object tag. This works fine if I load the html page in a browser like FireFox.
<object width="470" height="320" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="player.swf">
<param name="movie" value="player.swf"></param>
<param name="flashvars" value="file=video.flv"></param>
