Share directly to Kaltura or Panopto etc

Camtasia Product Manager and Team:  It is time for TechSmith to implement tools in Camtasia that allow us to automatically share/upload/etc with 3rd party video content management and streaming systems like Kaltura, Panopto, Brightcove, etc.   I know the resistance of this is to support your own Relay system, which is fine, however it is time to move beyond that.  You would open Camtasia to many more audiences.   I have been using Camtasia since near launch.  I use it to create all my videos for class demonstrations.  I also use it for video editing.  It is a great tool. 

I hope you will move beyond the "Relay only" mindset and open up for additional opportunities.

Kevin-
I'm just another user but have a couple questions. At what point in production do you forsee  sharing to those sites? Do they all accept the same video/audio format?

yes you can Share to your hard drive then go to those other platforms and upload, however I would like to see it share directly to them very similar to how sharing to youtube works.

So if it yourproject take 10 minutes to render and 1 minute to upload, you'd spend 33 minutes to render and upload to 3 sites. I'd prefer to render once (10 minutes) and upload 3 times, 3 minutes total. 
So you'd like direct uploads to 3 sites, what if I have 3 other sites I work with? And Rick has 3 more sites? Where does it end.
Combine that with the fact when YouTube changed the way they do video, Camtasia has to change accordingly.
IMO, I think there are a 1000 other improvements I'd rather TS developers focus on.

So here's what I do:
  1. All my project folders and output folders are replicated on Dropbox. This means automatic backup of everything without having to think about it.
  2. I no longer have to upload to Vimeo, because Vimeo can read my Dropbox folders. Once the file is automatically uploaded to Dropbox, it takes a tiny fraction of the upload time to transfer a file to Vimeo.
The clever video content management and streaming systems have the same capability, either with Dropbox or Google Drive.

I used my Dropbox account to share private link with collaborators. On a 135 MB file, simple cut and audio volume edit = 15 min render, 30 sec "upload" + 20 min Vimeo offline processing. I have no GPU, only Ryzen 7 2700. Saving up for GPU. Thanks again for the tip!
