Abstract: When smart phone are being so popular in this modern era, every user inspires the huge demand of real-time information. Watching instant news, amateur video on smartphone become the mainstream of how medias flowing and become part of our daily life. Some user with a heart of adventure love to share what they experiences with the eye in the smartphone, but it's a pity there are huge percentage of naïve user in the world, sharing a video to internet is a "mission impossible" to them. No wonder how much interesting contents lie hidden in the memory in people's smartphone. Think of how many curious users want to pry about what is happening in the city they living? How many users want to see the scene of a match in gymnasium? How much audiences want have an instant view in mountain bike racer and knowing where are they use pass through? On the market, there is lot of live broadcasting platform, some provide video on demand (VOD) services, some provide Global Position System (GPS) tracking on initial recording spot, some provide live broadcasting, and some provide mobile live function. However this is very rare have a solution that integrates all of these features. Summarized all of the proposed reasons, It brings out the necessary to this project. This project aims to study the existing video-sharing application with related technologies, find out the possibility in develop a better solution then existing platforms. Also this project will propose unprecedented approaches in overcome some technical problems in live streaming on mobile devices and algorithm to settle the contents monopolization. At the end, this project develops an integrated iPhone solution with live broadcasting, video sharing and geotagging and tracking plus application server modules. An evaluation to the proposed solution will be given. The project has multiple achievements aims to achieve. First, the application should simplify the steps on sharing the video to Internet, replace traditional sharing way from "upload video" by "broadcasting video", and make contents widely available to normal user. Second, proposed solution target to be ideal platform in discover more potential amateur video publisher, supporting amateur content spreading on Internet by proposed content recommendation algorithm. Third, real-time geotagging available in live video and recorded video in emphasize map and locations importance apart from video contents itself. Last but not least, contribute to public event for providing instant interior view without special video recording equipment such as mountain bike race.
