-streams using media players that support streaming (like mpv and VLC).
-We'll record the conference and post the videos and links on the
-individual talk pages. In the meantime, please enjoy

+Over the next few weeks, we'll split up the bulk video recordings into
+individual talks. We'll post the videos and links on the individual
+talk pages, and we'll send an update to the

-For audience questions specifically, we will be experimenting with
-using a collaboratively-editable Etherpad as the primary means of
-collecting audience questions.
-<https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/emacsconf-2020> If, however, you are
-unable to access the pad to add your question(s), we will still try to
-take questions from our IRC channel (`#emacsconf` on
-`chat.freenode.net`), and ask one or two volunteers to kindly add
-questions from that channel to the pad on behalf of folks who are not
-able to or prefer not to use the web-based questions pad. To make your
-question easier to spot, please start it with **Q:**.
