[Noisebridge-discuss] Secure video recording apps (WAS: door "security": culture, not policy.)

That reminds me of something.

What iPhone or Android software would (* mandatory):
1. * Record video
2. * Not allow viewing or deleting footage without a password
3. Not allow stopping a recording once started without a password
4. Work when the phone is otherwise locked
5. Upload video as it's being recorded
6. Record front & back video simultaneously

iPhone 5's Camera app, when accessed from the lock screen, does 1, 2 &
4 (though it requires the display to be constantly on while recording,
which is undesirable as a battery drain).

I don't know anything else that does what I want. Qik and Ustream both
fail point 2. :-(

Anyone know better solutions?
