CoBWEB Videostreaming Policy

Policy on Video From City of Berkeley Web Pages

The City of Berkeley provides videostreaming on its website in the form of both live video streams and of archived videos.

An index to all videos available on the web is located at  

All links to videos throughout the City of Berkeley website will be identified by a videostreaming icon (videoicon) to designate that the hyperlink is associated with a video stream and subject to this policy.

All City of Berkeley video clips must have text transcriptions or descriptions so that information transfer is not solely dependent upon these technologies.

To view and hear our webcasts, your computer must have a sound card, a minimum 56 Kbps Internet connection, and Windows Media Player or the Silverlight plugin for Windows/MacOSX.  The Silverlight Plugin supports provides streaming capability for Firefox, Safari and Chrome on the Mac in addition to Internet Explorer on Windows. Live and/or taped coverage of most public meetings can also be viewed on cable television Public Access Stations B-TV Channel 28 and C-TV Channel 33.
