Streaming Video
Live Video, streamed over the Internet, as well as archived recordings of completed sessions is available on demand through BYU and KSL. We have watched the conference through several years in a row now and love it. The Video technology has continually improved and the official video streams from the church website are using the same technology for the first time this year. The video player only works on Windows or Mac OS X. Last year, KSL appeared to be using the same player as, so they may all be actually the same source. Also, starting last year church officially provides a Video Podcast (see the podcast section below).

KSL: Video

Last conference was the first time the church provided official audio and video podcasts of the sessions. In past years KSL has also provided a podcast. In past experience, the KSL podcast sessions become available shortly after the session ends, but it has been unreliable. Last year the official audio podcast was posted remarkably fast after the sessions. Understandably the video posts a few days later.

The official podcasts include last week’s General Relief Society meeting, but strangely the video podcast, even a week later appears to only contain audio, not video.
