Separating video into hyperlinked tracks

Hi,

I am creating "how to" videos using Camtasia and a screencast of Adobe Illustrator. I have a transcript with time indications, but I was wondering if it would be possible to export the file and maintain the markers as tracks with the names I have given each marker??? or possibly could i put a hyperlink into the transcript to jump to that track?? Please see screenshot.

When you export the video use share to file.

Then choose Export to web page, and "create table of contents from markers"

To play the video, open the "Index.html" page generated by camtasia, and in the browser, hover over the running video, on the bottom right will  be 3 bars, click that and a menu of your bookmarks will be on the left side.



The index file and the other folders created with it, would need to be shared together, or hosted on a web server for others to use.

Can I change the thumbnails without adding a new image to the video?

Thank you. I had a look at that before and between you an me it looks like double Dutch and ancient Greek all in the same place!!!! I'm not that desperate!! It was a silly idea!
Now, I have tried to share the whole folder with ,my iPhone and iPad to see how the video will look on these devices and the video takes ages to load and when it does I cannot open and play it. I can watch the video easily on my desktop. I have tried even making the quality the recommended quality and it is still not happening. Do you know why?
I will be hosting the videos on a teaching website.

How are you getting the files to your iPad/iPhone?

I am either sending the whole lot with airdrop or saving it into Creative cloud and trying to open.

I don't expect it to work if it's stored locally on the device- it needs to be on a web server in order to work. Not sure whether you could use it off of creative cloud though. So, the web page, the video, and all of the supporting files would sit together on a web server, like your teaching website you mentioned. Put it there as a test?
