Watch the Obama surveillance press conference using free software

by wtheaker Contributions Published on Aug 09, 2013 03:24 PM
Looking to watch President Obama's press conference about PRISM and government surveillance using free software?

While this would all be easier if news agencies and the government streamed video using a system designed to support free software, it's still possible to view this conference using the popular program rtmpdump.

Make sure you have rtmpdump installed and enter this command into your terminal emulator:

rtmpdump -v -r rtmp://cp82346.live.edgefcs.net:1935/live -y CSPAN1@14845 -W http://www.c-span.org/cspanVideoHD.swf -p http://www.c-span.org/Live-Video/C-SPAN/ | vlc -
