Trying to import mp4 media to Camtasia 2018. Cannot play. In Camtasia 9 they work fine. Am I missing something?

If they work in Camtasia 9 but they won't work in Camtasia 2018.

I would have to say 2018 is missing something. Are you running the newest version? 2018.0.4?

If you are, I would place an inquire with support about it.

This is a Free Service............... Submit a ticket

Or call, >>>

8:00 AM to 7:00 PM EST Monday through Friday

In the meantime, unless theres some feature you must use from Camtasia 2018.

I would edit your project in Cam 9. There's really not much difference between the 2 programs.

I just imported a movie into CS 2018 and ran it w/o problems. (Windows 10 Pro)  Just a data point.
