Written by Jon Worrel

Another presidential first


This morning
, we tuned into the Official U.S. White House Blog to see U.S. President Barack Obama's second weekly address, in which he discusses how the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan will jump-start the economy.  What caught us by surprise, however, is that the blog is now available for viewing in 720p high definition as an .mp4 file, using compression formats AAC for audio and h.264 for video.

U.S. President Barack Obama has continued in his ambition to become an "Internet president" with his series of weekly addresses on the White House YouTube Channel and the White House Blog, both of which are offered in high definition.

The latest HD weekly address from the White House site is dated Saturday, January 24, 2009 can be found here.
