At McLaren Labs, we’ve been experimenting using Sensr VCam for iPhone as a 3G/4G mobile video upload platform broadcasting from both motorcycle and automobile. A moving automobile is a challenging environment in which to run a video upload application. A moving motorcycle is even more interesting (at least to me). As a motorcyclist, not only would I like to capture video footage in the event of a mishap, I also enjoy sharing my two-wheeled adventures in nearly real-time as I am having them.
These are conceptually very different uses of a mobile video feed: video capture, and nearly real-time sharing. What sorts of considerations should the architect of a mobile video upload app be aware?
