You only need Camtasia if you want to edit your video. Some webinars may have some segments that you want to clip such as: goofs, uhms or ahhs. Camtasia can also be used to render the video to convert into a flash video (FLV) format. Please note that many other video editors are available such as MS Movie Maker or Sony Vegas.

All comments are time and date stamped and appended to the webinar comment log. You can view the comment log anytime by clicking on the "View Comment Log" link in the webinar configuration screen.

Most web hosting accounts only allow for a very limited bandwidth. We provide the hosting for your video so you don't need to worry about running out of bandwidth in the middle of your webinar. You also need not get involved with creating a hosting account, FTP of files or sweating the disk or bandwith requirements. This is all handled so you can relax.
No, there are no extra fees for disk or bandwidth. We provide this service for you.
No, these services don't allow for webinar replays.
There are many disadvantages to running the webinar replay on your own domain. Live webinar events get far better attendance and conversion than replays because viewers don't want to miss the webinar - they know that it will begin at a specific time and conclude at a specific time.

A simple video player interfaces convert poorly because they don't have the look and feel of a live webinar. By sending visitors to your own domain for a webinar, they quickly realize that it is simply a recording/replay and not a live event and typically decide to watch it later… then forget about it. Webinar replays on reliable third party domains are much more credible.

By replaying webinars on your own website, you also run the risk of burning up your bandwidth quickly and getting shut down by your hosting provider. In addition, It's also extremely difficult to replay a webinar at an exact time when replaying it on your own domain. While replay software exists, all the replay software we’ve tried is buggy and unreliable.
The registration page contains information about the webinar such as: title, experpt, bullet points, your photo, date and time of event. The registration page also holds the web form to capture the visitor's name and email. The registraion page is synchronized with the webinar event and display information and is an integral part of a fully automated marketing system.
Not at this time. We do plan to expand into live webinars and web conferencing in the near future.
