Playing sound files

watermiracles I have the multi-media add on for Activ E-Book Compiler.

I have created a great audio/visual E-book and I'm thrilled with the robust video control, though I wish it supported a more compressed video format, but the sound control seems to be missing a lot.

It seems to allow only Playing from the beginning of a file. It requires 10 or 20 meg files where my web site gets by nicely with mp3 files about 1/20th of that size.

I can't find any pause and restart capability or any way to fast forward or reverse. Am I overlooking something?

I can live with the large files and no fast forward or reverse, but I desperately need a solution to the pause, problem!

How can I sell an E-book where the slightest interruption causes you to have to start all over from the beginning of even a 5-minute audio file? Some of us NEVER go 5 minutes without an interruption and we would NEVER hear the whole audio file!

Storyman Hi Watermiracles,

Don't know if this will help, but Camtasia can do what you want.

watermiracles Thanks for taking the time to help. My web site is done and working just the way I want it. Now I just want a simple way to make it run off-line with no Internet connection and no major changes in appearance and functionality and with as little work as possible. Does Camtasia fit that bill?
