Camtasia Studio, Proxy, and Screencast.com

  • Under Consideration
The idea is simple: add functionality for Camtasia Studio and other products to support advanced connection settings through a proxy server. This would allow those using Camtasia Studio behind corporate firewalls to connect to online sharing services, such as Screencast.com or Camtasia Relay, without losing any functionality within the produced videos.

I was quite surprised that Camtasia does currently have such functionality, as it is a component of many different applications, and is rather essential for a planned project on my team.

The work-around suggested by the support team was to produce the videos to my local drive and then upload through the browser interface. While fully functional this way, it is an extra step, and something that could be made a lot easier.

Thanks,
-Josh

Thanks for the request.  We have considered this but it's not currently on our priority list.  I would encourage all other customers that read this to give it a "Me Too" if you're behind a proxy and could benefit from this feature.

Once again, thanks for the request.

To be honest I don't think this is a feature you can avoid putting. I wasn't too happy deploying the Self-Hosted Relay server internally after paying a very large licence cost to find out that I couldn't rout the traffic via our outbound proxy. You need to understand that this product is not a home user product, and making the assumption that people have direct, open un-firewalled connections is hazardous to the life of the product you're selling.. especially in my environment where everything is proxied, pushed through the Cisco ASA, then back over the WAN to a parent government department which has its own ASA's. I have 400 Lecturers internally waiting to use a product that we can't actually use because of critical features missing.   

The browser upload workaround is not feasible with this many staff. We would need to practically employ someone fulltime JUST to upload the videos created by our Lecturers.. which is something we can't do.

Me too! I am behind a proxy and my trainees cannot take a quiz without it acting all janky.

The same happens with me, I cannot even update my version because of my proxy. Large corporations, all work this way, and this gap, exclude you from this market.

thanks for listening anyway
