I've said it before, while the Come, follow me youth curriculum has a quick, minimal work solution, it is not, in my mind, the entirety of what needs to be provided. As an example the WWLT this year has been announced as a 'local' viewing responsibility. It is not going to be broadcast over the satellite. The directions indicate that Councils and presidencies should regularly review the sessions. This means they should be available nearly any day of the week, and anytime necessary. What about Primary? What about Relief Society? What if I want to review a General Conference Talk, or RS training, or anything from the Leadership Training Library. Not to mention the Seminary curriculum.
The entirety of the medialibrary.lds.org should be available for viewing anytime, anywhere, and we need a solution for that. Either we have a local mechanism or we fix the 881W streaming issue, fix the online website limitations or allow those of us in Bandwidth purgatory due to location or local FM rules to find alternatives.
