U.S. House of Reps. Videos Now Streaming on Mobile Devices
Citizens can now view live video streams from the House of Representatives on mobile devices via HouseLive.gov.
The streams, available via HouseLive.gov, include videos of proceedings dating back to the start of the 111th Congress. Interested parties can click on “Video” to watch each session. They can also click on “Summary” to view text-only versions of the proceedings. MP3 files are also featured on the page, which notes that Windows Media Player or Silverlight is required to view the videos.
“The Office of the Clerk began beta testing this new H.264 live streaming feed for mobile devices last week,” writes Don Seymour, digital communications director for House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), in a Tuesday blog post. “Anyone with a mobile device that has streaming capabilities now has access to video of what’s happening in Congress, as it happens.”
