Camtasia (Mac): Upload Files to a Web Server to Embed on a Website

Problem

How do I embed a video produced in Camtasia on my website?

Solution

Camtasia produces Web-ready content when you save the generated files that contain the TechSmith Smart Player files, along with the video file. Upload all of the files that Camtasia produced to your Web server to place the video online. To view the video, enter the URL for the HTML page that you just uploaded into your Internet browser. Below is a video on how to upload your produced files to a website to play the video.

Embed Video on its own Page

  2. In the File format dropdown, select Export to MP4. Select the Export as Web Page option.
  3. Click Export.
