Hopefully someone can help with this situation. When I have a final produced video and open the HTML produced file with a browser (tested in Chrome and IE)...on my computer it's fine, but I have a 24" monitor set to the higest resolution. When I test it on my test laptop (13" screen)...the video is cut off. I have to change the zoom level to be able to see the entire video. I do not want my viewers to have to do that. What I am hoping can happen is the video will resize according to their resolution.

I have produced the videos using the following settings:
- Recording Dimensions 1024x768
- File Format: MP4
- Controlloer: Classic
- Theme: Glass
- Video Size: Custom (TOC Width compensate for the long Marker names)
- In the Controls tab...I have checked the "Allow Resize" option, but I don't have the option to resize)
- I do have a menu, and I would rather not affect the size of the text in the menu.

I have produced some videos using Camtasia 7 (Windows).

Is there a setting in Camtasia that would help, or something in the HTML code I can change to accomidate this.
Any help is appreciated!

Hey David,

We currently don't offer an auto-scale option based on resolution in Camtasia Studio. We have added a bunch of different features and options in Camtasia Studio 8.0.0 though. One which I think might help in what you are trying to do. When you produce down the Custom Path in Camtasia Studio 8 we now allow you to set an embed dimension along with the video dimensions.

This will allow you to set the embed dimension to be smaller and allow users to view the production on their smaller monitors without having to zoom out, like you mentioned. Those with larger monitors will be allowed to click fullscreen and view it at the full size of their monitors.

To try out a complete version of Camtasia Studio 8, free for 30 days, head over here:

I hope this helps. If you have anymore questions, don't hesitate to ask!
