Loop in the interactive video

I want to make an interactive video.
I want a part of this video be continuously repeating until a user click the home button.
Then it moved to the home screen and user can select different  part of the movie to show. After showing that part, it is back to the repeating video. 
Do you know first of all how I can make a loop for that specific section of the video. 
Secondly how I can order to restore to the beginning of loop video after finishing one part (Time management or something similar).

Thank You in advance.

Hi there

What you are describing sounds a lot like the older DVD menus that we would see. 

I totally stand to be corrected here, but there is presently no way I'm aware of to achieve such a thing. Not using Camtasia.

Perhaps some bright soul may know of a way to manipulate things to make this happen. If there does exist a way to make it happen, I'd love to see it.

You might investigate some DVD menu software (assuming folks are still making it). But even if you find some, I'd be willing to bet the features would only apply to DVDs and not to any kind of videos you will find on the web. Then again, I do note that Netflix seems to have found a way to just repeatedly loop video trailers on their page. But then, those seem to be looping a small video and not part of a larger video.

Cheers... Rick :)

actually, the desired behaviors can be achieved by producing separate videos for all the segments that need to loop until exited; these custom productions should be to MP4 with SmartPlayer where their end action is set to "loop"

the collection of looping videos can be front-ended using a simple button-style menu, also a MP4 with SmartPlayer production

here is an example of a button-style menu ...

the separate videos here do not loop, and have been set to pause at start, with click-to-continue hotspots at their ends; but they could have been produced to not pause at start, and to loop at end;

Thank you for comments.

Finally I use the PowerPoint for making an interactive video.
I think the PowerPoint has good features for managing slides and we can manage videos through slides.
