So, I'm not sure if you've seen this yet, but there was a recent posting about a - ahem - topless female OC'er who got arrested, and there were various videos of the event online. Many of these videos were shot on cell phones and uploaded live to a free online video service called Qik
. Neat stuff.
I decided about a year ago that this could prove useful in the future, were I to witness something newsworthy. Mainly because it a) captures the moment with both audio and video, and b) sends the recording elsewhere, so if the phone is ever taken from me, they can't tamper with the evidence.
Well, I finally decided to look into it. As it turns out, there's a plethora of devices out there that are compatible, and mine is one of them!
I've posted a couple test videos here: http://qik.com/zigziggityzoo
It's pretty easy, you just register for an account, select your device, and download the program to your phone. Within minutes you'll be streaming live.
Check it out. It could prove useful in the future.
