- We have usually watched General Conference on DVD. The DVDs take up to six weeks to arrive.
- For this past conference, we tried downloading sessions from the Internet and then playing it back on a laptop.

I have had good success in downloading the conference talks using a download manager called ‘Free Download Manager’. Download from http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/ It offers resume on interrupted downloads and the downloading of multiple streams increased the download speed from 56 Kbytes/s (4hrs) to 400 Kbytes/s (35 mins) I suggest that anyone downloading conference for a Media Player consider using a download manager. - Graham Walker, Parktown, South Africa
