Clinton video to be published
Committee chairman Henry Hyde was heckled as he announced the decision
The committee will also publish 2,800 pages of additional testimony.
The material is to be made public on Monday at 1300GMT (1400BST).
A White House spokesman said the decision was unfair, and raised serious doubts about the direction in which the committee is heading.
Additional evidence released to the public is likely to include transcripts of Ms Lewinsky's own testimony to the Grand Jury.
This is said to involve explicit details of her relationship with Mr Clinton which were not included in the report by special prosecutor, Kenneth Starr.
The videotapes will be subjected to 120 cuts before they are made public, according to committee chairman Henry Hyde.
While the Republicans, who make up a majority on the committee, insist that the decision was made by consensus. Democrats are insisting that it was forced through by the Republicans.
"I would say that the spirit of bipartisanship is still alive and flourishing," he said.
"There was a general view amoing Democrats not to reveal anything and a general view among Republicans to view as much as possible, consistent with responsible redactions to protect people whose names and vital statistics and involvement in this was very periferal."
Sexually explicit evidence
The committee considered "privacy issues, law enforcement issues, as well as decency issues," committee member Asa Hutchinson told the BBC while the debate was still in progress.
They are said to fear the use of clips from the video in Republican election campaign advertisements.
With polls saying that 70% of Americans do not want the tapes made public, the release of the tapes could yet backfire on the Republicans.
