What is a webcast?

A webcast is a transmission of audio and video over the internet. This service enables anyone with a mobile device (Apple or Android) or a computer to watch council meetings live or from the archive. Please note if you are using a Windows media based mobile device then you won't be able to watch live webcasts. If for some reason you can't view a webcast please ensure that you install Adobe's Flash Player on your device/computer.

Alternatively, you can share a particular point from a webcast (archive only) via the green circular buttons within the timeline.
