MP4-HTML5 Player

Export in MP4(H264)-HTML5 Player format is recommended if you would like your movie to be viewed on an iPad or iPhone. That being said, the export in this format actually allows your movie to be viewed on any device, including PCs, Macs, tablets, and cellphones.

Using this format does partially reduce interactivity. In other words, the buttons, edit zones and click zones can no longer capture mouse or keyboard inputs, although all of the Start-End properties are still available. Should you want a fully interactive movie, the Flash format is still the best.

Note: Those running Windows XP or Vista must have Apple QuickTime installed on their machines to export in this format. However, once the movie is exported, the end-user does not require Apple QuickTime to view the movie.

  1. MP4 - File Name
    Enter MP4 file name. You do not need to include the filename extension (.mp4).

  2. HTML
    This option creates four additional files: html5 file, html5db.js, html5db.css, html5db.png. The last three files are common and can be shared by any movie exported in HTML5 format. Once you export in this format, you should upload all 5 files(mp4, html5 file, html5db.js, html5db.css, html5db.png) to your web server, thus publishing your movie on the internet.
  3. HTML - File Name
    Enter html file name. You do not need to include the filename extension (.html).
    Edit HTML Content
  4. HTML - Color
    Select the background color of the page.
  5. HTML - Adjust Size
    You can change the size of the flash movie to fit your specifications. Moreover, you may choose to have the flash movie fit the browser window or you can specify new dimensions.

    Note: Please understand that there are differences between 'movie resizing' and 'html movie resizing'. The 'html movie resizing' option attempts to stretch the movie to comply with the dimensions specified, while also maintaining the previous aspect ratio. However, this option may distort your movie if drastically downscaling.

  6. Learning Management System
    Select this option if you want to upload your movie to a LMS. (e.g. Moodle)
    Demo Builder is fully compliant with SCORM 1.2/2004 and AICC Learning Management Systems.

    Check the 'Zip Files' box to compress all the files into a single zip file.
    e.g. moviename_aicc.zip, moviename_scorm12.zip, moviename_scorm2004.zip

Note: The video's dimensions will be adjusted as follows: in H264 format the dimensions must be divisible by a factor of 16. Demo Builder will automatically adjust your movie's size if it does not comply with the above specifications.
