Upload Camtasia Video to Website

I've produced a video using Camtasia and I selected MP4-Flash/HTML5 player as the format. After production is finished, I have 9 files and two folders (scripts and skins) that have been created.

My question is, what files(s) and in what structure need to be uploaded to my site for Flash and/or HTML 5 to display properly? Or do I need to consolidate the files in some way before uploading. I've tried uploading all of the files in a folder on the website and I still can't get the video to play. My host supports Flash and other Media files.

Thanks

Hi Logan:

Thanks for responding. I'm still having problems with the file. I used 852x480 and 1280x720, and also reduced the quality to 40% to shrink the file. Everything else is set to default.

The file renders perfectly in the browser on my computer. When I upload and view the file on my website, I lose the controls at the bottom and the picture is zoomed in to about 200-300%, resulting in most of the video is getting cut off.

Any ideas what to try next?

I did some more experimentation last night and I also wanted to give you more information about the site I'm posting to.

The site is a preconfigured template with built-in menus, features, etc. As an administrator I have backend access, however I don't have access at the file level. In order to post text, graphics or videos I must upload to a media folder and use a built-in custom HTML editor window. The editor has preconfigured menu icons for inserting Flash and Media Player (images attached).

I produced the video by saving all files to a common directory and uploaded them into a common folder. I can't create subfolders for content, only same-level media folders.

What I was able to get functioning is the code below with media player. I couldn't get Flash working. I Pasted the system-generated flash code below so that you could see what's going on.

Let me know how to best configure the videos so that Flash and/or Media Player works on all browsers and platforms. I plan on producing many videos for this site, so once I have the configuration worked out, I'll be able to follow the same procedure each time.



Sample Flash Code below which doesn't work

I found the solution. Rather than inserting the video into a page, I simply added a text ink to the MP4 file within the text editor.
