Just a suggestion, I have been using screencast.com for several years. My projects render and upload to the platform and I can control the access to which assets are available to users. The IT dept. needed an F5 VPN tutorial, other departments need to see my storyboard or prototype clips towards final productions, someone on the user forum needs to shown a particular workflow and so on.
Question is bandwidth needed; the Pro plan is $99 a year and it gets the job done for me.
A brief Google search turned this up. It's a course on udemy.com that purportedly teaches you how to configure your very own intranet video streaming server. Perhaps it will be useful? I know Udemy courses have a bit of free content in each course to help you decide whether the course is for you. I believe they also offer a full refund if you find the course wasn't what you expected.
Whatever you decide to do, it would be helpful for others if you were to keep us all updated on what you ultimately decided on!
Cheers... Rick :)
TechSmith also offers an end-to-end, recording/hosting/interactive/assessment solution called Relay.
You can learn more about this here:
however, most of my videos are self hosted on my own web sites; access to that content is controlled using several different methods
I use both a desktop front end and a web-hosted front end to provide controlled access to links to the videos
if interested, these tutorials will offer some insight into how this is done
web application approach
the desktop method can be tightly controlled using record set filtering and passwords
the web app method is tightly controlled via username/password credentials
I too work for a govenment organization so I think whichever model you are using might match what I am looking for.
PS- thank you so far for all the ideas from everyone!
Though the Techsmith Relay server CAN host replays, in order to take advantage of corporate LDAP, we can migrate the whole folder that Relay creates (there is a "MP4 with Smart Player" rendering option as well as many others including creating a .camrec file) to a production file server. A person who creates content on Camtasia Studio can migrate their rendered output to the same production file server OR go through the Techsmith Relay server if we prefer they do that.
For those wanting to embed their output into other services, it is usually a quick thing to come up with a template (often with an iframe widget) for embedding the Camtasia replay with callouts, indexes, quizzes, etc.
