Camtasia 8 Hotspots. I know that you have to use the Techsmith SmartPlayer to activate hotspots. Can anyone suggest how I can embed an external link into my video so that I can let the user open up a new browser window when they click on the designated area of the screen? Thanks

yes because hotspot behaviors are scripted in 2 produced files: xxxconfig.xml, and config_xml.js; these files are used by the smartplayer
