Is this live video from InSight spacecraft? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YCKwf3I5Lw
Does this mean it's still in earth orbit?

That stream looks like a clone of NASA TV. I presume the view is from the ISS.

Did they receive telemetry also from the MarCo cubesats ?
I dont see they have contact on DSN Now.

They did.
The first signal was received at 12:15 p.m. PST (3:15 p.m. EST) today (May 5th); the second at 1:58 p.m. PST (4:58 p.m. EST).
"Both MarCO-A and B say 'Polo!' It's a sign that the little sats are alive and well,"

I'm trying to remember the Phoenix EDL details, and IIRC it was pretty much just tones, and of course InSight is using the same bus. As you pointed out, however, those cubesats this time should relay much more detailed information so hopefully we might have a data-rich descent similar in some ways to that of Curiosity.

Icing on the cake would be if MRO can image the descent chute on the way down as it did with Phoenix and Curiosity. smile.gif


For Phoenix, Mars Odyssey was in position to do a "bent-pipe" relay in near-real-time. It was packet telemetry, not just tones, at something like 8kbit/s. One of the other orbiters (must have been MRO) was also recording everything in "canister" mode, which is more raw and better for forensics if they had a problem on landing. Phoenix also broadcasted tones direct to Earth.
