House Video/Audio
Help and Hints for iPads

We will be checking and updating these options in January 2015
when the House and Senate start regular sessions.

Disclaimer: These are suggestions provided by iPad users and have worked for some people, but there is no guarantee that they will work for everyone. The applications (or "apps") referenced are available at the App Store, which is an application that comes pre-installed on iPads.

If you have suggestions or recommendations for other apps that you've found useful for various pages on the Legislature's website, please send them to Thanks!

The following links should work with both GoodPlayer ($2.99) and OPlayer HD Lite (free but loads more slowly and displays ads at the top)

House Video - mms://

House Audio - mms://

Senate Video - mms://

Senate Audio - mms://

You should also be able to use the Mobile Device Player (mms) links on the House and Senate Video and Audio pages, but there appears to be a problem with the link on the Senate video page. We're checking into that, and hopefully it will be fixed soon.


Some users have found that the app Puffin (an alternative to the included browser Safari) makes it easier to navigate the Senate website, though it does not apparently allow one to watch or listen to the Senate video or audio (we have yet to find an application that does that):

  1. Purchase ($0.99) and download Puffin
  2. Once Puffin is installed, you can just click its icon then enter the URL of the site you want to view
  3. Like most browsers, Puffin lets you bookmark sites you visit often
