Camtasia studios 8.4 closes down when I click Share to YouTube. HELP!?

Ok! so I am currently using the 30 day free trial for the new Camtasia Studios 8.4 and its a great program. The only issue is I have recently installed the operating system (Windows 10 Preview) and ever since then Camtasia has been crashing on me when I save a recording.
I then have to reload it up and hope I get the recovery option 'Which I have been getting all the time, thank the lord!' But when I click share to YouTue the program closes almost simultaneously.
 It says (The video may be to long to upload) 'Yes its a 40 minuet video, but I have others 40 minuets that have said this and they upload no problem.
Is this all happening because Camtasia is not supported on the bate operating system for Windows 10? here's the link to the operating system download if you want to look it up - 
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/preview

Anyway I currently have to ideas for whats the causing the problem.
(1) Camtasia is not proporley supported for this operating system?
(2) Windows 10 is buggy being a beta and is causing problems for programs on my computer?

Thank you for reading this and I hope we can fix this together not just for me but for everyne else who may encounter this issue in our community :) Peace!

Anytime you install a beta program you are asking for trouble. That's why it is a beta version.

It would be pointless for TechSmith to trouble shoot an operating system that is still in development. They could go to the trouble of figuring  it out, and the program could be changed completely with an update next week.

See if you can produce the video as a MP4. If that works just upload it yourself.

I can produce it myself, however since I can't share it to YouTube how am I meant to upload it myself?

I'm assuming you have a you tube account? Just go to your Y-tube page and select upload.
If not, than obviously you need to create a you tube account.

What Joe says makes a lot of sense. Software companies and not just TechSmith can just go by beta versions of new Operating Systems that are in beta. I am sure they experiment in house or something but cannot release anything that is not in the final stage and ready for the consumers. That would be a hassle for them as there would be a lot of problems they would need to solve and fix first.

I would use Joe's suggestions for uploading to YouTube from the Windows 10 Technical Preview that is in beta and see if that works for you or not. Let us know and thanks for posting. I too use the Windows 10 on a Virtual Machine but just for testing purposed of the new OS Microsoft has coming our way. I do not try to many other software programs to see what the results are as the other software companies are probably testing it for their software and using your current versions of software they are not rated for using with Windows 10 OS so to me it would be wasting my time. Just my opinion. I use the Windows 10 just to find the differences in the OS Systems from one to the other. Thanks for posting and let us know. Have a great day.
