html5 and flv

Jan 13, 2014

if I crete a course in studio and publish it to html5 to view on an Ipad will the flv files work?  If not how would I have to save the videos to play in html5 on an Ipad?  Would i need to download the Articulate mobile player to have the video play correctly?

Hi there Eric,

HTML5 output does not support Flash (SWF) videos, if that's the type of media you're working with. You can either convert that to a format that's supported (MP4s are the suggested file type) or you can publish for Flash and the Articulate Mobile Player.

Here's a chart that I recommend keeping on hand if you intend to publish for mobile often:
