Search Media Recordings

0:00 0:00


The site contains an evolving audio archive of services from the 1950s until present, searchable by the speaker, year and announced preacher.

You may pick your interface (browse and search). Browse displays a file tree organized by the year and location. Search just allows you to enter a search string.

There are also buttons for pause, previous and next that work as you would expect. You can typically enjoy this audio through the newest cars with Bluetooth audio, slightly older cars usually have an audio-in jack.

You can touch the star on the right side to mark the track as a favorite. If you select the star at the top right, then only your favorites will show in the list.

When you see a track with a camera in the upper right corner, video of that track is available; just click on that camera and the video should play, otherwise, you'll get the audio from that video. While audio tracks advance to the next track automatically, video tracks will not automatically advance to the next track; when that track finishes, it stops. Finally, video tracks can be by themselves, or in the "file tree" with audio files. When we can, the audio files are segmented and labeled and may or may not have the video as their origin; we'll put a minimum subset of files of the same material in the browse archive tree and let you pick.

Minimally, these fields are currently labeled by the year and announced preacher. As an example, you can search for a particular meeting by typing the announced preacher, entering a space, and the year. So if you wanted to find meetings with Bro. Ray Smith in 1987, you could enter "Smith 87" and the tracks from that service should be listed sequentially. To find where 'John Doe' spoke, you can search for JohnDoe (with no space). A limited number of tracks are retrieved by default; if you verify you've entered the intended search, but you want more tracks, you can touch the "+" button to the right of the "Search Audio" header to gather all the rest of the files that match that search criteria. It is best to only use the "+" button if you need it (and turn it off when no longer needed); it can make your phone or computer seem slow as it searches 20,000+ tracks.

Mobile devices have in the past attempted to save battery life and will NOT continue to the next track if the web browser is not active on your screen OR if the screen locks. For continuous, multi-track play, you can temporarily disable your screen lock and keep the web browser active and visible on the screen.

You can touch the plus on the right side to show up to 1000 items.
