We know many people out there are huge fans of HTML 5, so we've released an option for Customers to choose which version of the Desktop Flipbook is served to their audience, Flash or the new BETA HTML 5 version. To access this feature you must have 'Beta Tools' permission enabled on your account.
Please contact support if you would like this turned on!

This option can be set for any Folder and will apply to all Flipbooks that live under the Folder.
How to turn on this feature:
