I'm working on an ePub (fixed layout) and I want to add music that will start at the first page and continue through all of the ebook pages (and loop allover again) - can it be done? how?

I tried to add "media" at the fist page - check the  "play on load" and "loop" (didn't checked the ""stop on page turn) but the music stops after the page turn...

Please Help

It is possible to play continuous audio in the background of an epub. Either by manual coding, or by using a third-party product. Aside from CircularFLO, another alternative is PubCoder. 

 

PubCoder imports the FXL epub from InDesign, and in the project settings an option is available to have an audio file playing across the entire book. Works in the Apple readers, as well as Thorium (Win, Mac, Linux). 

 

PubCoder is great, but has one caveat that it will not support InDesign's animation or interactivity features. The workflow is different: create your static FXL book in InDesign, import in PubCoder, add the animations and interactivity, export. Works very, very well. Unlike CircularFLO it is available for Windows and Mac. And very affordable.

Thank you for this - I will take a look. A shame Adobe hasn't added it yet but will investigate the options you've mentioned. SJ

Audio restarts as you change pages. So you can just stay in one page, and design the ePub so there is an internal navigation that allows you to go forward in you pages/slides  (MSO).

How about that?

Thanks - I'm not sure that would work for my current project but something to consider in future. Thanks again 🙂
