I am working on a learning module and I would like to have a video that can start from a specific chapter, not the beginning. Is this possible in Camtasia?

It's sort of like that option on youtube  where you can start the video from a specific time signature but still have the rest available.

Thank you!

Hello,

If you host your Camtasia output on screencast.com, we support deep linking to a time in the video.  Screencast.com uses the same TechSmith Smart Player to play back video, but by default local Camtasia productions are not setup to handle this deep linking.

To deep link to a time on Screencast.com, you can append the following to your view page url.

?t=[time] - Where time is string.  An example would be:
?t=20s
This jumps you to 20 seconds in the video.  Change that number to control the number of seconds to jump into the video.

Another example would be:
?t=1m2s
This jumps to 1 minute and 2 seconds in the video.

One note, most web browsers prevent auto play, so the user will still need to click the play button.  Once they do, the video will jump to the correct time code.

Let me know if you have any other questions,
Ben

Heres the deal Paul, its a setting you can change. You're not forced to stay with Googles default setting.
The new default setting serves more people favorably than it harms. It just doesn't serve kayakman the way he would like.End of story.

Well kayakman, perhaps you should urge your viewers to visit your website using another browser. If they have trouble viewing your content with fluidity.
Chrome has over 1 Billion users and dwarfs all other browsers.
If you want to end this, quit responding.

how do you up-front urge viewers to use a specific browser when they navigate to your sites on their own?

to end this now ridiculous dialog, stop making statements which demand a response

it seems you are insisting on making the last post in this thread; be my guest ...
