Adding Videos

You can add videos to your Flipbooks via the Video button on the left panel of the Flipbook Editor.

Click the video button then using your mouse pointer, draw the video box on the page.
When you’ve drawn the box, the video dialogue will appear. This will allow you to select your file and choose the type.

Object type

Object type determines how the video will appear on your Flipbook page. There are three options for videos;

  • Hotspot
    The video will open in a pop-up from a click of this hotspot.
  • Button
    The video will open in a pop-up from a click of this button.
  • Embedded
    The video will play embedded in the page of your Flipbook.


This is the video type. Currently three are supported with some more coming soon;

  • MP4 – Upload an MP4 video for playback
  • Youtube – Add a youtube video
  • Vimeo – Add a vimeo video


If you chose MP4 as your video type, you may see the option to upload your video file.

Youtube or Vimeo ID

If you selected either of these video types you simply need to enter the id of your video and our software will generate the embed code itself.


The advanced section includes options to autoplay your video, add a custom poster image or include a custom analytics tag to make tracking it easier.
