Embedding Camtasia 8 video in SharePoint 2013

I have Camtasia 8 and SharePoint 2013. I found this conversation about SharePoint 2010 that I thought would solve my problem, but it's not working for me. I know many things changed in SharePoint 2013, so I'm hoping a fresh thread for the current versions will help me find the answer. When I try these exact instructions using a Page Viewer web part, it wants to download the html file instead of playing the video embedded in the web part.


In Sharepoint 2013, I have a Media Asset Library, specific to pictures, videos, etc. (I'm no SharePoint ninja, so it took me a long time to figure out why my initial uploads were treated as image files, rather than html/css/xml/mp4, etc. I had to create an asset library specifically for media files.)

I uploaded the entire directory structure and all files for the published video in the SP Library. I've tried the Content Editor, Page Viewer, Insert Video and Audio, and Insert Link, with all of these pieces and parts pointing to the <filename>_player.html file. I also tried embedding html using the code from the <filename>.css file.

The video doesn't display embedded on my site with captions. Most of my staff do not have speakers or headphones, so captions are required. I have tested this outside of SharePoint with success, so I know the captions are working.

What I really want is to embed and play the video on the SharePoint site, and not launch it in a separate browser or a pop-up window. I can sort of make this work if I use the mp4 file, but then I lose the captions. 

Any help with this is very much appreciated.

Changing the HTML files to have the .aspx extension, and editing the one so that it points to  _player.aspx instead of _player.html are the parts that I was missing.
