CHM is an extension for the Compiled HTML file format. There are many viewers with different quality. xCHM has been my choice because of robust search, here their homepage. I however just noticed that some files are incorporated with videos but my viewer cannot show them.

How can you view CHM videos in OSX? Any good option for this.


Since I cannot comment your question for lack of rep, I'd suggest you try iChm 1.4.3 or 1.5.0. Latter was recently released, so if video doesn't work (a feature I didn't know about in CHM, by the way), I'd suggest you open an issue in the tracker.

  • I voted you up so you can comment soon. I think your proposals are completely valid as an answer. I would like to get any reviews about those viewers. The thing is now that I cannot remember which file was embedded with video so I cannot test it. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Apr 10 '16 at 16:32

    I only use 1.4.3 with QuickChm 1.1, but lack a Spotlight importer. 1.5 added an importer but seems to break QL. I'll head to the tracker for both issues. – 1.61803 Apr 10 '16 at 16:43

    I opened a thread about generating .chm document with LaTeX here tex.stackexchange.com/q/303549/13173 so we can get test inputs. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Apr 10 '16 at 18:18
