Many of us have used previous versions of Camtasia to create training products that were delivered via CD / DVD or played back on local computers.

This ability was removed from Camtasia 8, and Camtasia 8 videos can be played back (using the camtasia created html and scripts), is from the web.

This 'web only' playback means those of us who want to use Camtasia to create training products delivered on disks or to be played back on local computers, can't use Camtasia 8.

Please re-enable this feature in Camtasia 8 and newer versions of Camtasia.

At the very least, add in a 'legacy' player option - so those of us who want to use the player from Camtasia 6 (which would play locally and from CD/DVD), can have that option.

I've marked this thread as "Planned", which means we will try to address this in the next release, which will be a free update to 8.x customers. I'm sorry, but I cannot discuss release dates at this time. We will update this thread when this functionality is available. If you click the +1 button at the top, you can be notified when this is ready.

Thank you all for your feedback.
