3 Steps to Embed Audio/Video Files into ePub
I see that support for audio and video were added to Sigil in version 0.6.1. I'm trying to figure out how to add videos to my ebook, and I couldn't find any kind of documentation on this forum or elsewhere that told me what the tags are supposed to look like, and there was no functionality that I could find for adding video tags in the application itself. I tried putting in tags formatted according to html5, and Sigil complained that it wasn't valid xhtml. Can anyone point me to some description of the proper way of including video in my ebook with Sigil?
