VidyoWeb does not work on Chrome browser

VidyoWeb (the Vidyo plugin that enables users without the VidyoDesktop client to join meetings via the meeting link) does NOT install or work on the Chrome browser. This is despite the fact that the Chrome and Gmail vidyo extensions work well and are very useful. See for example this page: https://t...

Too bad YouTube doesn't pass the Church Firewall Test!

Re: Compare Streaming Methods for Gen Conf

These are all in areas where satellite installations are NOT authorized (and thus don't exist): like a branch on Aruba or Bonaire (or many other islands), or branches and wards on larger islands (like here in the Dominican Republic, or Puerto Rico or Haiti, etc) located at a distance from a stake or...

Compare Streaming Methods for Gen Conf

I'm working with units in the Caribbean which would like to stream General Conference and other Church broadcasts by internet to their buildings. Claimed download speed in most buildings is 1Mbs, some have 3, a very few have 5. All typically have real speeds that are more like 50% of those rates, bu...

Re: Email invitation icon doesn't work

The Email icon is supposed to take you to your default desktop-based email program (like Outlook). For the majority of the world without Outlook, that button is useless.

Re: HELP !

Hi Joseph. The scriptures themselves are public domain and do not require Church permission to use, quote, include, etc. The Church's particular presentation of the Scriptures (with footnotes, indexing, layout) presents a different issue, but I assume you're looking merely for the text to use.

Re: HELP !

I need the scriptures I n an easy format for me to easily put them straight into my app. There are also open source or public domain copies of all the scriptures available which may suit your needs just fine.

I bookmarked D&C 76:1 as our current reading location on my android device. Pulling it up through LDS.org (Chrome browser on Win7 laptop), Notes and Journal shows the following: 1 supbegasupend Hear , O ye heavens, and give ear, O earth, and rejoice ye inhabitants thereof, for the Lord is supbeg...
