Getting your Camtasia video off your desktop and into your guide is easy!

Let's go through the steps.

1. You need to upload your Camtasia video to a streaming media server. At this time, Springshare does not offer streaming media server space.  You may also want to consult with your IT department, they may own/licence streaming media space internally.

Here are some free/affordable hosting solutions:

2. Once you have chosen a streaming media site to upload your content to it, here are some steps to get you started. Produce your Camtasia video in the appropriate file format. YouTube supports many of the popular file formats ranging from MP4 to .MOV.

3. Upload the file.

4. There are two ways to get your Camtasia video into your Guides, embedding the file or hyperlinking to the file. With YouTube (or any of the hosted solutions above), you can utilize either of these options. To embed your video, check out the steps outlined here. With embedding, your Camtasia video would be playable within your Guide. For an example, of how this would look, see embedded video below.  To link to the video, you would follow the same steps for linking to any other type of external content. Check out this FAQ which will walk you through the steps of adding a link.
