1 min read

The following article is co-authored by George Perry and Simon Lissack, developers at IDR Solutions who work on a variety of projects for the PDF to HTML5 Converter and JPedal Java PDF Library.

In this article we’ll show you how to convert your PDF document to a HTML5 version and add an embeddable video to it using our online converter.

Step 1:

Select the PDF document that you want to convert by pressing Select File.


Step 2:

Click the Show Advanced Customization Menu checkbox and in the new menu box go to Page Scaling and select the outputted formats you want. Once done press Upload and Convert.You can also add social media via the social media options in the converter.


This is how it would look with social media.


Step 3:

Once your file has been converted, select the Add videos with the Editor option. Navigate to the page you want to add your video to.


On the Editor Menu at the top of the page, select Add Video and select the embedded video URL to use and drag the video over the area of the page you want to use. Please note you can currently only drag the selection box.


After entering the URL Embed code, click and drag on the page directly where you want the video to go.


For YouTube Videos: You need to use the embed URL to link videos which is found in the share tab under the video and then select embed.


For Vimeo Videos: On the web player, press share and in the embed box select the highlighted URL.


Once done, press submit. Be careful you cannot undo this. This will add the video to all of the converted documents.

Step 4:

Press Download on the editor menu and choose where you want to save your zip file. This file will contain the HTML5 version of your PDF document.


Step 5:

Place it on your website.
