LDS General Conference April 2009 – MP3 Audio, Streaming Video, Audio & Video Podcasts, & Twitter #ldsconf

[Looking for the October 2009 Conference, go here]

This weekend, April 4th and 5th, 2009, is the annual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where the modern Apostles and Prophets of Jesus Christ will speak. Every Conference I post links to MP3 audio and other Internet resources as they become available.

Streaming Video

Live streaming video of the conference, as well as archived recordings of completed sessions will be available on demand through the official church website as well as through BYU TV and KSL.  Our family has been watching the conference through the official website and through for the last several years and it has been great.  You can even pause the conference to go to the bathroom and come back without missing a thing.

KSL: General Conference Video


For the last couple of years, the church has provided official audio and video podcasts of the conference sessions. You can subscribe to the podcasts to receive conference on your iPod or in a podcast enabled feed reader like Google Reader. In past years KSL has also provided a podcast.

In my experience, the KSL podcast sessions often become available shortly after each session ends, but they have been very unreliable.  The official audio podcast has sometimes been posted remarkably fast after the sessions, but it has also been a little inconsistent. Understandably, the video podcast posts a few days later during the following week.

Twitter #ldsconf

Over the last couple of years, has emerged as a powerful online tool for live, real-time commentary.  An article on the church’s official tech website described trends in twitter commentary during the last General Conference. This year, the official twitter page of the @LDSNewsr0om will be twittering the conference as well.  If you are a twitter user, you can post your conference comments using the #ldsconf hashtag.

View #ldsconf comments on twitter

An archive of #ldsconf comments will be available @LDSConf.

Links to the mp3 audio and mp4 video podcast files will be automatically tweeted through through @ldsconference.

Video/Twitter Mashup

Bryce Haymond will have a mashup of the live streaming video of the conference side-by-side with the twitter #ldsconf comments at his Temple Study blog .

LDS Blogs

To find LDS blog commentary on the conference, you can check the LDS Blog Portal at which aggregates blog posts by mainstream and orthodox LDS bloggers as well as content from official LDS websites.  You can also check out LDS blog posts specifically tagged with ‘conference’. Nothing Wavering also tweets links to LDS blog posts and official content on twitter @ldsblogs, @ldsbloggers, and @ldsofficial, in addtion to the @ldsconference twitter page mentioned above.

Let me know if you have links to any other great conference resources.
