Does camtasia 8.0 allows adding link to another video tutorial?

  • Problem
  • Updated 6 years ago
Hello,
At the end my video, I want to add links to other videos such as "Related Videos". I tried hotspot callout and Marker feature. But, both ended up with adding links to the frames within a same video or to an external URL but not to the one I have created using camtasia. How do i get it? Is it possible in Camtasia?

Thanks,
Deepa

I assume you want to link to another local [as opposed to web hosted] video?

if so, do a custom production and set the after video behavior to go to url, where the URL points to the next video

Thanks Kayakman. I did try custom production - after behavior option but it is not working out for me. Please see the attached image. Is it right way of doing it?

the URL should be like ../Video2/Video2.html where the next video plays in a browser [security issue]; all the related videos should be in their own subfolder and all the subfolders located in the same folder location.

Hi Kayakman and Logan,

I am able to connect two videos (At the end of one video,  the next video (HTML) appeared in continuation to the first).
 
My requirement is: At the end of one video, i want to suggest a list of videos related to the task illustrated in the first video. Say, "Hey here are the related videos, click to view them". It is the user's decision to view it.

In case of the suggested fix,
  • I was not able to link to multiple videos/HTML.
  • The next video appeared in continuation to the first one which is against my req.
I tried callouts - hotspot - URL option, but could not link to my local camtasia video. The final videos will be uploaded to a FTP site.

Hosting the videos on web would help me?Any other way of doing it??

Thanks,
Deepa

here are examples of 3 techniques that do what you want ...

http://cookbookplus.com/Temp/Grog2013/Grog-Chapters-01-26-Q/Chapter-01-Q.html     using links over video frame on html

http://www.cookbookplus.com/videos/bmr/bmr.html   using links under video frame on html

http://cookbookplus.com/temp/Kayak/SawPitGrapevineOsbornRollinsCoves/SawPitGrapevineOsbornRollinsCov...       using multiple hotspots [both at beginning and end of video]

the links or hotspots must use a full path URL address pointing to web hosted content
