Hello,

We are using Camtasia Studio 8 and generating the Video by merging multiple files. We are editing the videos. Putting the some slides in it also we are using the Table of Contents and map thoes to each merged videos.

Our final Video is too long so we will like the option for Forword and Backward for 15 seconds. It is very difficult for end user to drag player bar and find exact what they are looking for.

Some times video length could be more then 600 mins.

Let us know how can we do this. Also it is nice if we can show the timline on Player bar when user drag the player slider bar.

you can essentially do what you want by utilizing marquee line timer callouts; these are assets that you create and put in Library to enable more precise navigation when viewing long duration videos

the marquee callouts use go-to-marker hotspots to span marker segments, and navigation is [normally] in 10% of marker span increments; but you could do the navigation based on 10 or 15 second increments is desired

both tutorials also utilize marquee callouts; perhaps play, click, and try for yourself?

if you use the technique described in my tutorial, set the duration of the hotspots to 10 seconds in length, instead of the 1/10th marker segment I used

Hello,

I have reviewed your update. I need the forword and rewind control in the Player like Play and stop.

Is it possible to put that into player.

have you considered using a different way to display your video collections?

with long duration content, I break it up into a collection of very short "snippet" videos; theses are linked together using either embedded hotspot menus, or by using an external menu

when the videos are short, the issue you are trying to resolve becomes moot

examples ...

software product tutorials
