2nd query - video - mpg files in Windows XP

kiwiblue Thanks for the reply but I want to run the ebook from the CD. I do not want for it to be required to be installed. I looked in edit startup in ebookcompiler but I dont see any options that would cover this.
I downloaded the Inno soft package from JRsoftware as you suggested but it appears to be only for programs to beinstalled. Is this the case? Can you help please.

EBookCompiler Ignore earlier response. Sorry I posted the answer to another question in the wrong thread. Too many windows open!

Can you post the HTML code with the problem.

Also check the CODEC used is available on all the OS's. This could explain it.

Please keep all future comments in this one thread, (Post Reply) rather than starting a new thread each time.

EBookCompiler What happens if you play the video in the media player

If you get the same kind of issues in XP as in the ebook in XP, it could be you're missing the CODEC for the particular format?

kiwiblue I don't there is a solution for this. It seems like a problem with Win XP so I have decided to just put a pop note for XP users explaining the problem and explaining that if they left click on the video playback and move it slightly. OR hold function then press F5 The video shows fine then.
I also worked out another solution. Embed the video into an html page. Dont include it in the ebook but link to it as an external file.
This works well but opens the browser for to view in. ThHis is not what I wanted.
