Closed captioning and hot spots.

I recently posted a Camtasia video to Screencast with closed captioning and it worked great. After revising the video to include hot spot links (to outside websites) I uploaded it again and the CC did not appear. The reason why? It was because one of my hotpots was a "mailto" link. Currently, Camtasia supports hot spot links to websites only.

I'm hoping the product will support "mailto" links in the future.

Sure seems odd that a simple link would make the hotspot functionality break.

I know that I've seen TechSmith folks say that the linking capability has been limited because it represents a security threat.

Cheers... Rick :)
