Would hostspots work only on screencast players?

Hostspots dont seem to work when the video is sent out as an MP4 file. Are hotspots designed to work only when a video is played in the screencast.com window.

Hi there

When Camtasia produces the output files you need to also ensure the player and associated files are produced. Then you need to ensure ALL the file s and folders produced are copied to a web server. Those files are what makes the hotspots work. So sure, if all you want to do is upload a video, ScreenCast.com is one option. But if you want to host the video elsewhere, all those other files are required. If you just upload the MP4, no hotspots or other features like that will work.

Cheers... Rick :)
