OpenWatch-Free Video Streaming

OpenWatch-Free Video Streaming


OpenWatch is a global citizen journalism project with the goal of building a more transparent and less corrupt society.

This app will allow you to stream video and photos directly to the web! It's the easiest possible way to get your media online. Use this application to record any events you witness, your encounters with the police, border agents, or other authority figures, or to just record anything you find interesting. Your recordings will appear online to be used in public interest investigations and news stories.

A low quality video stream is sent the OpenWatch.net web server while you're filming, in case your phone is deliberately or accidentally broken while you're filming, and then a high quality version is synced online once you're finished recording, giving you the advantages of a streaming service like uStream, but all of the high-quality video ability of your phone's local video camera.

OpenWatch can also send you alerts and special assignments, so you can become the top reporter for events in your local community. Top contributors may even be offered special missions and paid opportunities.

This is the first version of the application, so please let us know if you find any bugs or have any feedback to give us. OpenWatch is Free and Open Source software.

User reviews of OpenWatch-Free Video Streaming
Doesn't work on my phone (HTC MyTouch 4G) and after trying to open the app all my video functions stop working (camera, video recorder). These things work again after a reboot, but I have not gotten OpenWatch to work once. Not good.

Couldn't even establish contact to create account With full five bar LTE and WiFi on asp couldn't connect to open watch to create an account. Given the apps purpose work on connectivity or the ability to start an upload just before locking your phone to keep a cop from deleting video is useless. Same issue on both Galaxy S3 and Nexus 5
