A video with highlights from the October 2009 LDS General Conference was just posted at generalconference.lds.org.  This 16:16 minute video is available in English only. At the top of the English page for the October 2009 conference, you’ll see the links to a Windows Media video and a QuickTime video.

For my friends who are less acquainted with the Church, here is a pleasant way to find out in just a few minutes what top Mormon leaders are teaching their flock in the precious few hours they have with a live worldwide audience.

imageThere is also a conference music page associated with each conference (notice the link to it from the top of each conference page) that contains downloadable files of the music from the sessions of general conference in various formats.
