After recording, I hit the stop button and I get the message "It is either an unsupported Media Type or required codecs and not found."  Camtasia support was unable to help as they suggested what everyone was saying to download a codec file. That is only if you're trying to move something into Media from another device which I wasn't doing. I was just trying to record. It worked fine for Trec files but not AVI. After poking around I found the issue was audio and not video related. The audio defaulted to the lowest 8bit CCITT option. I changed it to PCM and 48 bit stereo and then it started working. I posted a short video showing how to do this on my You Tube channel if you are unaware of how to make this change:
