Camtasia Playback Issue and Its Solution

The Camtasia screen capture files (TREC and CAMREC) and Camtasia Studio project files (TSCPRJ and CAMPROJ) are all proprietary formats of Camtasia. In other words, there are no third-party players and devices that are able to directly open and play them.

However, There Are Too Many Restrictions When Streaming Camtasia Files to MP4

1. Only 480P, 720P and 1080P 3 kinds of resolutions are available which may not make the output image perfectly fit your screen size.

2. Changing codec is unavailable in this program. Let's take MP4 for example. H264 is its default output codec that you can never alter, so, sometimes it may not be playable on some devices or players.

3. There are really limited choices for audio settings which may lead to playback problems on some players.
