What is a webcast?
A webcast is a transmission of audio and video over the Internet enabling you to watch council meetings live from the comfort of your own home on your PC, Apple Mac, tablet or smartphone.
Using this microsite
Forthcoming and most recent webcasts are displayed on the left. Older webcasts can be found in the Webcast library. All our webcasts should be archived within two working days and are available for 6 months after the event.
When watching check out any extra features that may be available such as presentations, resources, and speaker profiles. In an archived webcast, use the links in the Timeline to jump to a specific agenda item or speaker.
Please note that councillors may be referring to agenda documents via their tablet devices.
Sharing and embed features
Click the Share button at the top of a webcast player page to share the short link via social media sites or email, or obtain the HTML code to embed the webcast on your own web site (N.B. wordpress.com sites won't allow embedding).
For a live webcast, these share features are available from the player page on the day of the webcast. For an archived webcast, you can also choose the point in the webcast at which you want the link or embed to start. This time facility can also be accessed from the webcast's Timeline.
