I don't have flash since it's an iPad but is there a way around this?

I watch my Camtasia videos all the time on my Ipad - just output to mp4.

There is a Techsmith tutorial on creating them in the Techsmith learning center.

Thanks but I didn't create the video I'm trying to watch. My professor made the video and posted it on moodle. When you click on the link, it says you need Flash to play the video. I was just hoping I could listen to the lecture on my ipad.

Does the site give you the option to download the Flash video?.... If it does, you will find several files, one of them will more than likely be a MP4 or FLV file.

If its a MP4...You are good to go.

If its a FLV... You will need to convert it to MP4.

There are several good video converters out there.

"Handbrake" is free and arguably one of the best.

Good luck.

I don't have the option to download, the link sends you to a tab that starts loading the lecture immediately if you have flash. If you don't have flash, it displays an error message and link to download the latest version of flash.

On the corner of the lecture, it says the file is a FLV

I would send a message to the lecturer... that it's in his own best interest of wider viewing to make it downloadable for mobile devices i.e. iPad and iPhone.

Even Adobe can smell the coffee ;-)

We told our instructors about the issue at the beginning of the semester. The thing is, it still takes them 20 minutes just to open a powerpoint lecture. Hopefully they'll seek tech support for next semester.

Today, we just released the Camtasia Studio 8. One of the cool features is that if you produce your video with TechSmith smart player, your can then view the content in nearly any device, including iPad. Please check it out here: http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia-wha...

Thanks,

Kevin
