The video clips included here are a remote capture of the live web-video stream produced from IGF. The files have some dropouts, freezes, and other glitches, but for the most part the video and audio are clean and clear. Special thanks to the technical advisers who handled the video streaming from IGF to allow remote participants to play a role.
Due to technical limitations on the receiving end, some segments of the session are missing. The link to a UN PDF of the full transcript is included below. The clips here are from the concluding segment. The moderator for the session was Jonathan Charles, a journalist with the BBC.
These are QuickTime video files that require a high-speed connection. We will later link them on YouTube in a smaller, more convenient file size.
