Viewing Church broadcasts using USB drives

For areas with limited Internet availability and/or prohibitive costs, one central location (such as a stake or area office) can download General Conference or Come, Follow Me (youth curriculum) videos and distribute to local units via USB drives. Using a Western Digital WD TV Live Media Player and included cables, the local unit can plug in the USB drive and play back videos for congregations and classes.


Downloading files

Church broadcast MP4 video and MP3 audio files are compatible with the Western Digital Media Player. For more information about downloading these files, please refer to the following pages:

Connecting to a projector or TV for playback

Connecting device
  1. Connect the power clip to the power cable plug. The AC power adapter will vary, depending on your location. Some locations do not require a power plug clip. Units sold in those locations will have a fixed power plug.
  2. Connect the power cable to the media player’s DC connector, and then plug the opposite end into an AC power outlet. The media player powers up automatically.
  3. Plug HDMI, component, or composite connectors to the appropriate out ports on the media player. NOTE: For audio when using a component connection, plug the composite-to-mini connector into the composite port on the media player. Plug the audio connectors on the opposite end of the cable into the composite audio input ports on your TV, red to red and white to white.
  4. Plug the opposite end(s) into the appropriate port(s) on your TV or projector.
