Camtasia Interactions, Amazon S3, Screencast alternative

  • Question
  • Updated 9 months ago
I create videos with Camtasia and use hotspots and quizzes. These interactions only work with the smartplayer. The interactions will not work on youtube, wistia or vimeo. I was thinking of using Amazon S3 to host my videos since I plan on making many videos and upload them to my website. Hosting on screencast can get pricey once viewers start viewing the videos and bandwidth usage increases. Hosting the videos on the site itself will weigh it down. Does anyone have any ideas on the best route to go here?

you can uploads your files on Amazo s3 then embed it on your website. so, you don't need to upload them to your website. You can embed smart player on WordPress or HTML.

I'm hoping that if you manage to sort it, you will come back and report how you did it. Especially with the Amazon S3 bit. Seems that this bit is a huge mystery. Almost as if anyone that knows how to make it all work is hiding it for some reason. Frustrating!

Cheers... Rick :)

What I am trying to figure out now is which is the better option for pricing. It might be that screencasts the better option after all! I will definitely report back.
