# Fields*Live* Video Archive

This archive holds videos of past Fields lectures. Lectures are archived in two formats.The interactive format, viewed in a flash-player-enabled desktop web browser, allows you to zoom in and out on specific areas of the blackboards or screens (providing a viewing experience more like being present in the room). The static format, although it does not allow for zooming in to read small blackboard writing, is downloadable and compatible with a wide variety of desktop and mobile video players.

Please note: we are experiencing another backlog of videos due to resource constraints. September videos not currently showing should be avilable by the end of the month.
