    You can try Kodi on Android. I made a simple add-on for it to view the seminars. You should find it under the the name “Long Now Seminars” in Kodi. Currently you have to be member of Long Now to use it, because the add-on uses the seminars list view page to get the list of available seminars. Hope this helps.
