New in Version 1.9.6 --
1. YouTube upload authorization has been repaired.
2. We no longer send any upload notification messages from the app.

The Cop Watch Video Recorder app provides the easiest way to create and upload videos about police-citizen interactions. Settings are available to have the app begin recording as soon as it is launched, and to upload video to YouTube automatically. The app also provides some handy reference material concerning your right to shoot these videos.

One user writes "I recorded an event when the police were questioning me ... It seemed like because of the fact I was recording them they were acting nicer than usual. At one point 1 of the officers tried to grab my phone, but I warned him if he tried to damage the phone or stop the recording it will be uploaded to YouTube immediately, and then he stopped, LOL. It felt good like we are equals, as it should have always been."

Please note -- all recordings are uploaded to your own private YouTube account. At all times, you can control who, if anyone, can see your videos.

Could be promising

This app has potential to be useful. However, it does not seem to behave in a consistent manner. The video screen starts out as a black screen. Sometimes it remains black, and sometimes it starts displaying the camera screen after a few seconds or longer. It would be nice if we could select whether to show the camera screen or to leave it black. Also, even when the screen is black, it seems to be recording and uploading properly, except that you don't know which camera is active. That by itself could render the app useless.

Does not work. Just freezes on the upload screen every time.

Was great now buggy

Am I the only one getting this bug where it take 3-5 minutes for the video to turn on after you press the video button. It just started doing this a month or two ago. Other than that I love it. I'm curious as to anyone else experiencing this glitch?
