I am using Camtasia 9 to produce videos in which I have a menu to jump to an appropriate section of the training. This of course works fine locally, but the videos are being housed and displayed in Office365.
The MP4 file does not honor the menus, I need to include the support files for the menus to work. But I don't see a way in Office365 to do this.
Here are my file options in Office365:
Is there a way I can get my menus to work in Office365, or do I need to rethink my approach and not have a menu structure if I am using Office365?
Thank you for any thoughts.
As Gary stated, Screencast.com is one option. The only other option is to host ALL the output files on a site that allows you to upload them. If any site other than Screencast.com simply allows you to insert or upload the MP4, you are squarely out of luck, because all those additional files are what makes the magic happen.

But sites like YouTube, Office365, etc., do not have embedded SmartPlayer functionality, so no support for interactive content
When you produce to MP4 w/controller [SmartPlayer], like when doing a custom production, you get the MP4 and a bunch of support files, including 2 config files and 2 html files. The interactive content is scripted within the config files, and is consumed when the video is launched using one of the html files, which reads the config info and uses the accompanying SmartPlayer to display the video in a browser; interactive content is then available. That is why all the support files need to be hosted on a web site.
However, you could host the video files [MP4s] on Office365, but without interactive content.
But you could create a links menu to access the MP4s by using an Office365 supported file type that supports hyperlinks that point to your various video files.
File types that should work would be HTML, Word, XL, etc.
Regardless, SC.com might be your best solution for hosting your videos; or, get your own web site [very inexpensive now]. I use both methods myself.
If this isn't clear, search this feedback for earlier questions on this . Ik now we discussed it in V8
