dkarels, where is the video being posted?  I think you might have to use Relay or Screencast to get that functionality.  A few years ago I had a screencast account with Techsmith and embedded an assignment in the video - worked like a charm!  There might be some LMSes that offer the functionality, too.

When you produced your video you must have checked the SCORM option.  This will wrap your video and our TechSmith Smart Player in a SCORM package.  A SCORM package is designed to integrate easier into a LMS (Learning management system).  The TechSmith Smart Player will display that error message you described when viewing the video outside of a proper SCORM environment.

You will need to produce the video again.  This time in the production wizard look for the SCORM checkbox and make sure it is unchecked.  Camtasia will produce a folder with the video and HTML that will allow you to playback the video without that error.

Let me know if you have any other questions,
