All video is distributed as an MP4 file. A file with the .mp4 file extension is an MPEG-4 video file format. MP4s are one of the more common video file formats used for downloading and streaming videos from the internet. It’s a highly versatile and compressed video format that also can store audio, subtitles, and still images. All video sessions for the 2021 virtual conference will reside in the Faith+Lead Learning Lab.
To honor our presenter contracts, you will have access to the 2021 video recordings for one year; after May 31, 2022 your account will revert to audio-only access. You will not be able to download any of the video sessions; rather, you will only be able to watch them while within the Faith+Lead Learning Lab. You will be able to download the audio MP3 files and play them on a variety of devices.
All audio is typically distributed as a Podcast: The word podcast is a play on the word broadcast combined with the word iPod (one of the most popular portable MP3 players. Apple did not invent the word podcast. You do not have to have an iPod to listen to a podcast. You can listen to podcasts on anything that plays MP3s. Once the podcast is downloaded, it’s just an MP3. Therefore if you wanted to, you could download a podcast, which then becomes an MP3 file, expand it to its original size and then record it on a writable CD so you can play it in a CD player.
The Festival sessions will be recorded & managed by the Festival of Homiletics as part of Luther Seminary or provided by the speakers/entertainers. These include all lectures and sermons, and interviews unless otherwise noted in the program schedule.
