EBookCompiler Is this a CD-ROM?

If usingwww.ebookpower.comoptional add-on try

[A HREF="##AMM.VIDEOFULLSCREEN('{appdrive}:\folder\video.mpg')"]Click here[/A]

If not ebookpower, try, will open based on file assocation, try

[A HREF="##OPEN('{appdrive}:\folder\video.mpg')"]Click here[/A]

Replace [ ] with less-than greater-than signs

Replace folder with name of folder on CD-ROM drive (no spaces)

Replace video.mpg with name of video

Make sure ebook EXE and video are on same drive letter when testing.
