Low Bandwidth General Conference Feed

Postby richalger » Sun Oct 05, 2014 9:16 am

In times past, we have used the low-bandwidth video streaming from lds.org. It opened up inside Windows Media Player.

It had a lower quality picture but it did not pause for buffering like the other options did.

Is this option no longer available?

My guess is they are using Brightcove's dynamic streaming capability, where it will (hopefully) adjust the bitrate on-the-fly to match your available bandwidth. Did you experience buffering pauses?

We had a few. I was using the youtube live stream for a while. It seemed the lds.org (brightcove) stream was better.

It was better than in times past. Not as many buffering pauses.

I would like to watch general conference talks again after the live broadcast. I go to (I think) conference.lds.org and the high quality video pauses a lot, I do not see a way to turn the quality down. I can watch on Roku just fine (2 dots of quality out of 4) but sometimes I wish to watch somewhere else in my house where I don't have Roku.

Is there a way to watch general conference recorded but at a lower video quality?

To the previous post I would suggest a Roku box it is $50 connects to wifi and does a really good job automatically changing video quality to match the internet speed. You can sign up for mormon channel for free on Roku (or BYUtv) and they both broadcast it live and we watch with no buffering problems at all.

You could watch the talks on YouTube, and use the option on the the lower right of the video player to lower the quality.
