Have you looked into the technical specifications at any ebook vendors?
It may be that someone on this forum has done such... but yours is the first question I've ever seen (unless I missed one) so you may be the pioneer for this forum
The various ebook vendors should have technical documentation available for you to read
If there has been a previous post, I missed it too.
I'm curious as to the necessary specs., myself.
asked some help from colleagues and found these comments out from: http://www.pigsgourdsandwikis.com/2010/05/html5-video-works-on-ibooks-on-ipad.html
"The video should be in .m4v format or .3gp format. If your video isn't in one of these formats already, open it in QuickTime, and choose Save for Web, and then choose the desired format. The .m4v format is higher quality and looks beautiful in the iPad. The .3gp format is for cellphones."
"I have seen iBooks with .mov and with .avi. I've also noticed that the audio encoding (of the video) is important. My still camera creates videos with the wrong audio encoding and they don't work unless converted to .m4v, but my husband's camera (a different type of Canon), creates the same video format but with a different audio encoding, and his movies work in iBooks."
still at a loss as to what resolutions will keep a video clear in playback while viewing it in an ebook.
hope to get some suggestions
Something to keep in the back of your mind is that programs, like the great free Audacity, can rip Audio and allow you to Save it to other Sample-rates and Bit-depths. If you have SoundBooth in your CS5 suite, it can do that too. The first task is to get everything in good shape for PrPro, and then to alter the settings on Export.
Thanks Bill, I indeed heard Audacity is a very good audio editing product although I havent used it yet. I mainly use Adobe Audition and Soundbooth for my audio editing. I believe that Audacity can do that job.
