Can I use PDF files with your software?

myPF doesn’t support PDF file format as other PDF based page flip engines. Therefore it doesn't need any PDF component on your server. You don't have to use it on our server or you don't pay any extra charge monthly or yearly. You need to convert your PDF file page by page into SWF or JPEG files. We don't have an advice for this. You may find the details about that in those pages: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=pdf+to+jpg and http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=pdf+to+swf

Can I use sound and video on the pages?

Yes. You can use SWF pages with embedded, uploaded sounds and video files. To include video, please refer to the sample file (07.fla) in the "Source" folder. The video doesn't have to be embedded on the timeline as I've shown (dynamically loading an FLV or SWF would work fine too) but the key is that the video CAN'T start on the first frame. This WILL cause problems. I'd recommend using the onVisible and onInvisible functions mentioned above to control the video playback.
