AFAIK you can´t use SWF file exported from indesign with those services you mentioned... but you can of course publish that SWF to your server by yourself. When you export SWF, indesign creates 3 things for you, SWF file which is actual content of your magazine, Resources folder that includes all the videos etc. externally placed materials + one HTML file which is a wrapper for the SWF. You have to upload all those 3 things to your server and then you have your magazine published.
If you want to refine your magazine with navigational user interface + some extra features like zoom for instance, you may want to take a look at http://www.edocker.com
Here´s a sample magazine made from indesign with eDocker2 Desktop Publisher
Thanks for this.
Do you know of any free page turning software such as eDockeras all the ones I have found seem like you have to buy a licence, this is just beacause my magazine is free and I dont make any money from it.
I think pdf is the best solution if you want free (well, prepaid anyway), without the problematic page flip animations. You won't know whether the user has a pref for downloading or viewing in browser though, but you can force a download, by putting the pdf in a folder with a htaccess file that will make it appear as an 'attachment'.
For online page flip, Issuu is great, but you'll lose all animations, video and custom hyperlinks, though additional links can be added after uploading, using their editor.
You can save the publication as PDF and the content (videos) in separate files. Than composite everything in external app, like this online one: www.pressmo.com
Even though it's not written in the specification they allow to add videos on the page, like here: http://pressmo.pl/page-flip/shhhutter/0/ page 12
hope it helped
I think you need a 3rd party tool to create interactive page flip book for you. There are lots of such tools online but with different costs, you need to search and test to make sure that animations and videos can be played after being converted to the page flip book.
Yes - you can create your own flip magazine. Basically, you save as a SWF, then import the swf back to InDesign and save as an interactive PDF. More details here: InDesign: Creating interactive PDFs with Page Turn and Flash animations | CSInsider | Design | Adobe TV He also has another video that explains how to add a page turn indicator and to create a background for the magazine rather than having just a white square at the first and last page. (I've figured out the first part - still working on the second!).
