Video Streaming from Smartphone

I did a little test with Ustream, a live video stream service for smartphones (and webcams). The video quality sucks, but I was impressed that it is possible at all. I used the 3G network and crappy cam of my HTC Magic. A useful service to film police encounters because the video is automatically saved in the cloud so that mister Cop can't delete the video that shows his anal rape.

This is a "live recorded/uploaded" example,

impressive. Although the slogan is a bit confusing: "Recorded Live". I thought all video material is happening live when it's recorded.

Or is it already possible to record something 2 hours after the something happened?

Nice concept. Pimp, recorded live could mean recorded to the cloud live instead of being uploaded to the internet later.

Perhaps they should change it 'uploaded live', it makes more sense than 'recorded live'.

Well I think it fits the definition: "Recording is a process of capturing data or translating information to a format stored on a storage medium often referred to as a record."
