FLV format comes BACK to Camtasia v6!

by 12 comments
Hey Camtasia Warriors!

Just got a message from Troy Stein (product manager of Camtasia at Techsmith) that the FLV Flash format that was removed in the new version 6 release is coming back in an update version 6.0.2!

This is scheduled to be released "later in March" according to Troy...

This is a good example of a company listening to their customers. Believe me...a bunch of us Camtasia fanatics made a HUGE stink about dropping this format when v6 released!

At least someone is listening...

    True but actually the MP4 format in Camtasia 6 seems to be better for YouTube...

    The FLV support is great for those of us who used custom players (I use Media Menu Producer) which only takes FLV videos.

    I think MP4 is a better format personally and much more scalable. FLV is ok if you are stuck with certain players. I found a great plugin for wordpress that lets me add my mp4 videos from amazon plus lets me add graphic. Actually it is meant to be just a flv player but works fine with mp4.

    I tend to find FV4 (the newer flv) produces a LOT better results. I would love it if they added that to Cam...

      Hi all,

      I had done a search of the forum to find an answer to my question and found this thread. I hope someone can help me.

      I am trying to download a video from istockphoto and import it into camtasia.

      For some reason, I am unable to do that. It appears the format is incompatible
      but I don't see why.

      Even though I clicked on mp4 for downloading from istockphoto, camtasia is not
      recognizing the format for uploading into my library.

      Anyone know the secret to this?

      Thanks in advance!

    Totally good news everyone. Thanks for sharing!

    As an alternative, you could also use ScreenFlow which works similar to this.

    Ah irony, as I come across this thread while wondering why version 8 does NOT import .flv files...
