No Sound for BoS Meeting

Sorry about that- it would have helped greatly if I remembered to plug in the audio cable!
Not to worry though. It was also recorded ( with sound) and will be available as soon as possible on the Town website.
The really good news is that we approved the migration to the video streaming company, Town Hall Streams. They will permanently mount a camera on the back wall with internet (and audio) connected and we will have ability to live stream every meeting in the Town Hall meeting room.

Are there any other Android users out there? I tried to watch part of the BOS meeting live and tried the replay today - but it did not work on my phone (Android 4.4, latest Chrome). My Apple iPhone and iPad worked fine. It would be helpful if folks try watching the replay on their Android device and report here if it works.

I get the same error message as you got Bill on my Android.

Confirmed same error on Android versions 4 and 5 (latest). Let's get this fixed before signing a contract.

No need to get ALL flavors of browsers compatible before paying $250/month, so most can view live town activity. Use your other browsers/devices.

Get rid of need for operators and a week before viewing.

Get it signed and operational NOW!

I'm at my brother-in-law's in PA, and he brought up the Town Hall Streaming on his Motorola Android phone Razr, Operating system 4.4.2
