Sorry but your last video told me nothing. I found it difficult to read any text but as I didn't know what file you were looking for it made things difficult. How did you upload the video files to screencast.com?

Ok upload a higher resolution version. I use the camtasia builtin share to screencast.com feature. Both are owned by TechSmith.

I was looking for "google roman Urdu.avi" and "test.avi" which I shot with cam studio and are present in c:/program files/camstudio, but I can't find those files using window's explorer.

Now I have uploaded a higher resolution version with audio commentary. I this will hep you understand my problem. Please do watch it in full screen mode, it much more clear to read.

here is the link. http://www.screencast.com/t/3UNhowpE.

For uploading see http://www.techsmith.com/learn/camta...screencast.asp, although this one if for camtasia 6 but the process is similar for Camtasia studio 7.

P.S Sorry for the lower resolution file. Now I have uploaded the higher resolution one.

OK Solved the problem. You are perfectly correct when you say that you cannot see the files in Windows Explorer. But save the files to a different folder and they are visible. Just create a folder in say "My Videos" and save your recorded camtasia files to that and all works perfectly. BTW if you do a search for one of the files that you are looking for it will come up in the Camstudio folder. Why you can't see it in WE I don't know at this stage but I will look further after the holiday.

When the files come up in the search if you right click on the file in the list and then click the Security tab you get this Message:
Screen Capture tools-capture78.png

Exactly what this means I don't know but it appears the file is only a "shortcut"
But as I say just save your files to a separate folder and all is well!

What I have no found is that in Windows XP the avi files saved to the C:/Program Files/Camstudio folder can be seen and edited normally. It seems that the problem you are experiencing is peculiar to Windows 7. A compatibility issue perhaps.
Just done another test. Now solved it completely. Uninstall CamStudio and re-install it in Compatability Mode using Windows XP SP2 and it works perfectly.

A little bit of further information:
There is no need to uninstall the program. Navigate to the programs exe file in Program Files (x86) folder and right click on it. In the drop down menu there should be something like "Compatibility issue...." Click that and follow the screen!

I followed your advice, and ran it in XP compatibility mode. Now It is saving files with that lock and they are visible in Windows explorer. Though one problem remains I can't see the files I mentioned in my previous video. I'm currently producing the video to explain this.


Leave everything I found the solution

Hi Yousaf
Thanks for the feedback. So now all your previous files are available? I would still recommend creating a separate folder in say "My Videos" and store all your Camstudio clips there. Then it i much easier to bak them up and reinstate them if you ever need to do a format!
