Webcast Link Opening in Evernote

Postby rmblood » Sun Jul 06, 2014 8:49 pm

My dad was trying to watch stake conference on his iPad through a link provided to him by the High Priest Group last week. The link was: http://webcast.lds.org/521175-618635. Every time he clicked the link, it opened Evernote and showed a file for download. When you click on the file, it asks whether you want to view it in Drive or (I think) a Windows Media player or something like that. Anyway, he could never get it to open.

Can any one help me solve this? I can't understand why it wouldn't just open the URL in Safari on his iPad, and why it insisted on going to Evernote. I'd appreciate any help I can get on this so we'll know how to handle it next time. Thanks.
