    Default Production of vid with 'table of contents' other than Camtasia?

    Hi

    Does anyone know another video editing package in addition to Camtasia which will produce a 'flash file with a 'table of contents'' as output? - i.e. it produces a page of hyperlinks which take you to the sections in the video you have selected and play them.

    I will be having a number of 3-4 hour videos which I will want to split into 5 or so sections, and have the 'table of contents' link to the sections. This is a webinar, and it is for ease of navigation for the folk watching it afterwards.

    Camtasia does it fine, but doesn't like the Gotowebinar wmv output as it hasn't got the timestamps Camtasia requires (Camtasia support). It crashes. I therefore have to convert the Gotowebinar wmv to an AVI with a video converter, then open it in Camtasia.

    This is all a bit flakey: this webinar will be important to circulate, and I want a backup!

    I have checked out Sony Vegas and it does not seem to do the same.

    Any ideas anyone? Any info much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi Malc,

    I work for Citrix Online the makers of GoToWebinar and would like to try and help you with this. I am going to assume that you have GoToMeeting set to automatically convert your recording at the end of the meeting so that you have normal WMV file without our codec? If this is true and Camtasia does not like the file you can convert GoToMeeting recordings with a free tool from Microsoft:

    Here are the steps to download/install Windows Media Encoder, then how to process a video with the original settings.

    DOWNLOAD/INSTALL
    1. Go to
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...a9-b2f1182cdf24
    2. Click 'Continue' on the web page
    3. Click 'Install' at the prompt
    4. Click 'Run' at the prompt
    5. Follow the installer directions to complete installation.

    USING WME
    1. Click "Start", then "Programs"
    2. Choose "Windows Media", then click "Windows Media Encoder"
    3. Click "Convert a File", then "OK"
    5. Click "Browse" next to Source file: and find your GoToMeeting video
    6. Choose "File Download" and click "Next >"
    7. Click "Next >", no changes
    8. Click "Next >" again, no changes
    9. Uncheck "Begin converting when I click Finish"
    10. Click "Finish"
    11. Click the "Properties" button
    12. Click the "Compression" tab
    13. Click the "Edit" button
    14. Highlight whatever is in the Bit Rates box
    15. Click "Edit"
    16. Check the box for "Same as video input"
    17. Click "OK"
    19. Click "Apply"
    20. Click "Start Encoding"



    I hope this will resolve your issue.


    Thanks,


    Glenn Dobson | QA Manager Global Customer Support

    Default Gotowebinar.

    Hi Glenn

    Many thanks for this info.

    You may be interested to know that your support (Gotowebinar) denied all knowledge of the issue . The guy said he had worked there a long time and he had never come across this.

    I told him there were many posts about the issue if he Googled it. He said: "Can I help with anythign else?" I said: "Yes a better answer to my last question."

    He didn't laugh at all.

    Anyway, thanks again and I will give your answer a go. Thanks for the trouble you have taken.

    Malc
