Reimar, ffmpeg works, but most of the time I get  with another camtasia files:

Forced video codec: camtasia
Opening video decoder: [vfw] Win32/VfW video codecs
Loading codec DLL: 'tsccvid.dll'             <------It's using the dll!
Loaded DLL driver tsccvid.dll at 7f840000
VDec: vo config request - 1024 x 768 (preferred csp: Packed YUY2)
[PP] Using codec's postprocessing, max q = 9.
Could not find matching colorspace - retrying with -vf scale...
Opening video filter: [scale]
The selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec.
VDecoder init failed :(
Cannot find codec matching selected -vo and video format 0x63637374.
Read DOCS/HTML/en/codecs.html!
