your iPad app, ScreenChomp, seems pretty cool but do you plan something for the android tablet users?

I'm afraid I don't have any information about planned Android projects (you'll have to wait for a product manager to chime in), but as a fellow Android user, I support this idea! :)

Thanks Mason. What will help us is if you help understand your scenario... are you teacher you / your school is rolling out Android devices? Are you wanting to use it at home? Are you not in Education at all and are trying to use the app for something else?

Lots of questions, I know, I know :) But this sort of information helps us understand you better so we can serve you better!

I also have a similar question. I have created an .avi video using Camtasia 5 and people aren't able to view it on Android tablets. Is there a codec they can download or is there an application (like Camplay for Android)?

Hey Blaz,

When you create an AVI using Camtasia Studio 5, by default, it will use the TSCC codec. At present, there is no TSCC codec available for mobile devices. Your best option is probably to re-produce the video in a format supported by mobile devices. I can't remember off the top of my head if Camtasia Studio 5 supports MP4 production, but my guess is that it does not (I think this was added in Camtasia Studio 7). This format will work very well on almost all mobile devices. I know if you have a lot of movies that this is probably not the ideal solution, but it is probably the best one available (unfortunately mobile video was not really a popular or even well-defined area of the industry back then).

Blaz, since you have avi videos and don't have our current version of Camtasia Studio, you would need to use a video converter. We recommend posting video in mp4/h.264 format for best compatibility.

You'll need to check with the tablet vendor to see if they support mp4 format and what sizes work with each model.

We have a support article that has links to numerous converters:

Of course, we would be happy if you decided to upgrade to Camtasia Studio 7; our Sales team can assist you with that if you decide to take advantage of our new features.

+1 for Android. Snag-It like functionality is a must. After seeing the Adobe TouchApps last week at MAX which will be on Android first next month, I saw the usefulness of a Camtasia app. I work for a Gov org that is about to issue tablets and the ability to create training videos on the device (iOS and Android) would be amazing.
