RoboHelp experts,

I'm creating HTML5 Help output for a software product that has three versions. I've configured conditions for each version, and published three separate standalone HTML5 Help systems. However, many of the files are shared among all Help systems, and some of these files are very large (video files). As a result, the Help systems contain several large duplicated files, and my engineering team is concerned about the disk space requirements in the product installer.

Does anyone know of a way to share common files between multiple HTML5 help systems?

Best regards,

Kate

In this case, I would place the shared files on a fourth, separate location. Instead of embedding the MP4 files in the project, link it to the shared location. You can place the MP4 files on a simple webserver, or leverage a platform like YouTube or Vimeo.
