Uploading Camtasia video to web page

I'm trying to upload a Camtasia video that I produced as a Flash file to a web page I'm building on WYSIWYG Web Builder. The video is showing up on the published page, but not the Play, Pause, Stop, etc buttons. So if the viewer needs to stop the video they have no other choice but to exit the page. Can you help with this? Thanks, Cam Former Army Ranger

Re: Uploading Camtasia video to web page

If you are using a Flash then you can create your own flash play, pause, stop and exit button by flash using action script so that when you upload video through website it will work. if no idea with action script then refer to this site .... Thank you

Why is picasa desktop application not uploading Nokia mobile x6 mp4 videos to web albums

There can be many reasons for the same. Here are few issues:

1) You have reached your limit of Picasa Account.
2) Videos are not rendered or adhere the standards of Picasa.
3) Your Mobile Internet Service is not working.
4) Overall size of the video exceeds 1 GB.

But most likely it seems like an issue of standards. Please read the following to know more.

Hi I've downloaded flash in a zip file and installed it like it mentioned in the help file I uploaded the file to my web server main directory but I got a problem playing the mp3's...

I set up flashmp3player at home on a Linux server and it played music fine when I loaded it through flashmp3player.html like you said. At home I'm able to access the mp3/ subdirectory but on your site I cannot:

I suspect your web host may be prohibiting access to files and/or directories with 'mp3' in the name. Try copying an mp3 to your web root directory and then downloading it - if access is denied then my theory is correct.

When I go into FP explorer it won't load my

I had a similar experience. Perhaps this advice (from my Web Hosting provider will help (However I was using FP 2003):

You can publish your web site from a copy on your own computer to your hosting account , or you can edit your web page directly on our server making the changes instantly available without having to publish.

To publish from your computer to our server:

* Open the copy of the web site you have on your computer

* Go to "File" then "Publish Web" on the FrontPage menu

* Type in the web address of your server based site (whatever yours is ...)

* Click "Publish"

You will be then prompted for your hosting username and the password you assigned when installing Frontpage extensions.

To work on the live version of your site, open the web by going to File --> Open Web menu, and then typing in the web address for your site.

In this scenario, when you create or edit a file, you're editing it directly on the server, and therefore do not need to upload it, as it will already be there. Exercise caution, because if you make a mistake there really is no way to fix it, as the changes are instantly made on the server.

When using this method, we suggest you make a backup copy of your files in case a problem develops. Clients are responsible for maintaining their own backups.

Special note:

We strongly recommend not using FrontPage's FTP feature for uploading - all publishing should be via the http:// publishing option. The reason for this is that we've noticed many clients who are not familiar with the FrontPage FTP feature tend to accidentally delete critical folders or upload to the wrong folders. Using the http:// publishing option ensures that your site will be uploaded to the right folder in your account.

If you need to use FTP, we recommend using a dedicated FTP program - some of them are listed here.

Memory Problems

The clip can be recovered if you open the temporary directory where Camtasia stores the raw captures in AVI format. The path to the temporary directory can be found by opening the Camtasia Recorder > Tools > Options > Program > Temporary file folder (I'm using v.5 so it may be a little different in other versions).

I've found that there's a certain workflow that seems to work best and you can avoid accidentally erasing your temporary files and having to start your capture session over from the beginning...

  1. Stop Camtasia Recorder - Pressing the Stop button on the Recorder likely won't work, so open the Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DELETE) and select "CamRecorder.exe" from the Processes tab and click "End Process". Don't open Camtasia Studio right away after doing this step - You'll likely be prompted to recover the recording and in my experience Camtasia hasn't done a very good job at being able to do this successfully and you may end up losing your temp files.
  2. Recover your raw capture files - Navigate to the path where Camtasia stores its Temp files (look above for instructions). Typically, there will be a folder titled "CamCapture{random string of numbers/letters}" - look for a folder with a date modified attribute of the date/time you were working on your project. In that folder, there will likely be several audio and video files as well as an XML data file. The video files will all be 1GB apiece as Camtasia splits the capture into chunks and then pieces them back together to create one continuous file. Cut and paste the files from this folder into a new location outside of the Temp directory. The most important one is the FileWriter{random string}.avi as this is the pieced together file - It will have the largest file size.
  3. Add your media files to the clip bin/timeline - Start a new Camtasia project and import the FileWriter{xxx}.avi clip into the Clip Bin and drag it onto the timeline. Now all of your video/audio should be recovered and available for you to edit. If you have particularly long clips, you may want to check how the audio syncs with the the video towards the end of the clip. If it's messed up at all, you may want to try adding the smaller, chunked recording segments sequentially onto the timeline to see if that helps. If the FileWrite{xxx}.avi clip is good though, you can delete all of the other smaller audio and video clips associated with the capture from your pc to save space - just keep the FileWriter{xxx}.avi clip - the XML can be deleted too.
Good luck - We've had the same trouble here and we use Camtasia almost everyday. In my experience, this seems to happen more frequently when we capture larger dimensions - especially if the capture contains full motion video (as opposed to just screen captures of a product demo or something) and we always seem to have trouble when capturing things that play back FLV or SWF clips at a higher bitrate. This issue is also described in TechSmith's Camtasia knowledge base.
