Black screen while recording a virtual machine with a windows 8.1 host.

I used to employ camtasia to record some tutorials on ubuntu which was running on a oracle virtual box. 

It used to work fine with a windows 7 host but recently I updated to windows 8.1 all I get is a black screen (the sound is recorded fine). I should clarify that black screen occurs when I set the virtual machine to full screen.

Do you have any suggestion on how to solve this issue?

Thanks for your time

I'm not aware of any known issues recording a full screen app on Windows 8.1.

Which version of Camtasia Studio are you using?  Also, can you clarify the host and guest operating systems?

Hello Dave, Thank you for your reply.

The host machine is windows 8.1 and the guest one is ubuntu 12.04 (the software I I used to create the virtual machine is virtual box)

The camtasia version is the 8.3.0
