Camtasia: Known Issue Recording DVDs - Mac OS 10.7 and above

If you are trying to record a video clip for a Camtasia presentation and you are using a Mac that is running OS 10.7 or higher, you may encounter an issue with playback

Apple changed the way screen capture is performed, starting in OS X 10.7 Lion. DVD video played back with the Mac OS DVD Player software can no longer be captured. Earlier versions of OS X are not affected.

There are two workarounds:

  1. Play back the DVD with a different program such as VLC media player and capture it.
  2. Use DVD ripping software such as Handbrake (may require installation of VLC and supporting libraries) to convert the DVD video directly to a usable format such as mp4 or QuickTime movie.
