I think to remember seeing unintentionally(!) one oral argument (no, not on youtube but on a official court page) some time ago, but I'm not sure which circuit that one was from.

So Ray, please tell us what is the regular modus operandi in the fist circuit?

Are oral arguments before THAT court routinely made available as audio and/or video stream?
