We provide specially coded video players to enable Apple mobile devices to view Flash Live Streams.  As some may know, Apple mobile devices DO NOT natively play Flash videos.  This has been an issue for several years and Apple shows no sign of changing their policy. So, we have gone the extra mile in providing Apple viewers a “transcoded” live stream.

For a demonstration of this technology, please feel free to give us a call and we will upload a live stream for you to watch on your iPhone or iPad.

THE FUNDAMENTALS OF WEB STREAMING

Dear Pastor Tim,
We listened and watched the service from home, once again.  Preparing for Christmas has always seemed quite “easy” as we have lit our advent wreath all through the years and taken part in all the services for as long as I can remember.  This year we feel so distant from the all the the sights and sounds that surround us.
The live stream has become more than just something Westminster Presbyterian Church does as outreach.  It has become our connection to worship.  It is a real church experience…not a made for broadcast production.  It has a “grounding” effect as we watch keeping  “us in the loop”.   The beauty of the season is seen outside our windows today…and was also seen in the service we watched on our computer this a.m.!
Thank you…Nancy and Jim

People often ask me this question, usually followed by a comment quoted from their pastor who says, “I don’t want people staying home and not coming to church. Won’t they stay home, if they can watch in their pajamas and slippers?   There are many answers to the question, but my research and polls have found that the driving force behind people’s desire to view church online is wide and varied.  Here’s just a few of the most common reasons:

The 5 top reasons to provide live streaming are:

1) Young couples who have just moved into town will watch a live stream church service an average of 6 times before stepping foot in the church building.

2) Streaming is an effective way for existing church members to stay connected with membership.

3) Providing an alternative for those who have odd work schedules or who travel frequently for work or play  (snow birds).

4) For those who are sick or infirmed.

5) For the elderly who can’t leave home (shut ins) or those living in an assisted living environment.

Also, if folks are like me, when a child in the family is ill it is impossible to bring them to church and drop them off at the nursery because you don’t want other children at the church to get sick too.  So, the most likely situation is that one (or both) of the parents stay home from church as well to take care of the little one.  With a live stream of the church services, the parents can keep up with what’s with going on in the church family as well as enjoy the sermon from the convenience of their home computer or mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, Droid, etc.).
