This page allows you to select and configure the HTML rendering engine for your eBooks or applications created with HTML Executable.
HTML Executable allows end users to navigate through the pages of your eBook or application. It offers two options for the HTML rendering engine: WebView2 and Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF), both capable of rendering HTML content.
HTML Executable lets you choose between WebView2, a Microsoft Edge (Chromium) based technology, and CEF, a Chromium-based framework. The choice depends on your specific needs and the compatibility of your content.
No web server is required: HTML Executable uses its own internal protocol to display pages as if they were hosted on a remote server. Any compiled file in your eBook or application can be accessed as if it were a normal webpage.
Unless your project requires the Flash player and you can not use the Ruffle alternative, we recommend that you always use the latest version of the CEF renderer. However, if you still want to use the Flash player, choose the option named "CEF (Version 87) with old Flash support". The software will then ask you to install the necessary files with the Web update utility if you have not already done so.
If you want MP4 support, you can choose the WebView2 engine or use an appropriate CEF version in HTML Executable (provided that you have a valid MPEG license).
Users who would like to have the dedicated CEF build with MP4 support can contact us, but please remember that you must hold a license obtained from the Via Licensing Alliance.
