TechSmith Smart Player- Share high-quality, HD videos that your viewers can watch anytime, on nearly any device. The TechSmith Smart Player is intuitive and detects if your viewer’s device or browser supports Flash. If their device or browser doesn’t support Flash, the TechSmith Smart Player will playback the content using HTML5 – helping ensure that your videos will play. Upload the videos you make in Camtasia Studio to our free hosting site, Screencast.com, and easily share the link or embed it in your blog. The TechSmith Smart Player also helps you engage with your viewers by supporting interactive elements of your videos like hotspots or quizzes.
Quizzing- Discover if your viewers are watching and learning from your content by adding quizzes to your videos. With help from the TechSmith Smart Player, quizzing supports both Flash and HTML5, which allows quizzes to now be taken on iPads, Android tablets, and most Android smart phones. Quiz results are sent automatically to your email and let you know how much of your video was watched by the viewer. Plus, it does the grading for you.
