Hi,

Is there any way yet to include media (audio, video) in PBB's made with Logos 5.

It used to be possible with Logos 4 under Windows, but I can't find a way to do it with Logos 5 on the Mac.

Any ideas?

thanks

karl

As far as I know, nothing has change for PB when it comes to L4 & L5.

It depends on what you mean by "include media". If you mean "can images be inserted into PBs?", then this still works in L5. If you mean "can images be inserted into PBs and then show up in the media section of a passage guide", then this has never been possible. It's also never been possible to insert video or audio into PBs.

Yes, i mean audio and video.

It was possible in Logos 4, I had many sermon videos included as PBB in just that way.

It would be good if this could be added back in for Logos 5

thanks

Perhaps the change is in the way Word handles the videos.

I sent these up in an older version of Word on the PC where adding media included a media player.

Now, on the Mac, adding media just adds an icon

That's more likely to have been the change. Perhaps you could re-compile your old docs in Logos 5 to see if they still work.

In November, Logos programmer Bradley Grainger said:

Bradley Grainger (Logos):
2. We're not planning to support audio/video in personal books; this would probably be best accomplished by hosting the video at YouTube or some other site, then just putting a URL to the video in the PB.

I confess, however, I've never tried inserting video. How did you do this?

Thanks for your reply.

I don't have the original files anymore.

I just inserted media into the Word document and compiled everything worked fine.

Pity its no longer supported.

thanks

As I said, I don't think anything's changed in Logos, so if it used to work, it will still work. If something has changed in Word, that's a different story, of course.
