RE: Why not?
The rationale behind eating meat is that there are certain joyous occasions that override the sadness of the 9 Days. One of them is the celebration of finishing a section of Torah. However, that only helps for those who participate in the actual celebration and the meal that ensues. Since virtual viewers are not present at the celebration, they cannot eat meat.

Feel free to ask away! The word is Shulchan Aruch, the literal meaning is 'set table' and is a reference to the standard code of Jewish law, compiled by Rabbi Yosef Karo. You can find more information here

Another optional server?
I have an Android atrix, and my device doesn't have this video format available on it. Can there possibly be another option how it can be viewed for the conveniences of others? Thanks for understanding.

Why not?
What is the halachic reasoning that I couldn't watch a live Siyum and be able to eat meat??

You are correct. A virtual siyum does not allow the participant to eat meat. However it does serve another purpose: A siyum is not just a loophole to allow us to have our hamburgers. Rather, it serves to infuse simcha shel mitzvah (the joy of serving G-d) into these otherwise sad times. This joy is contagious, and hearing a siyum over the internet is surely a good way to tap into that joy--at least remotely. So while it does not allow you to eat meat, it certainly does change the atmosphere of this period. Instead of just looking backward at the destruction, we can also look forward to the rebuilding.
