Hi everyone, I am hoping somebody may know the answer to this.

I am creating my own WordPress website(s) - still learning. I am also creating my own interactive Camtasia videos (seem to have that working well).

I want to upload these videos to my domain host's server (I have access to the CMS) and make these videos available in a member's area on my website WITH the hot spots, quizzes and other interactivity still available. Is this possible?

I would rather not go to the effort of putting them on you a 3rd party site such as you tube, screencast or Vimeo (as I am not confident on how to keep the interactivity on thos sites) - Seems like one more hoop to go through.

I guess I am asking if someone has done this before and if so, could you please advise the simplest way of doing it?

Cheers and thank you

Sharyn

yes, it possible. you must produce your video to mp4 with html. and upload that folder to your hosting. so, every things you do with quiz or hotspot still available in your video. you use wordpress, you can embed your video into wordpress post.

Thanks Sumarn, it will take me a while to get my site running to the stage where I can do this. However, if I am having troubles after I try your suggestion, I will come back to you. Cheers. Sharyn
