This idea came to me at my daughter's middle school band
concert. There must have been at least a dozen parents
either in the back of the auditorium or in the audience
recording the performance using either a video camera or
a smart phone.
Imagine a web site, sort of like a mashup of Adobe
Premier and YouTube where these parents could upload
their raw video. The innovation of this idea is that the
web side is capable of synchronizing multiple videos of the
same event (by comparing the video and audio and
perhaps timecode). Users are presented with a timeline
interface (think Adobe Premier) and can select among any
of the sources and mix between them. Then the
uploaders, or any other users they allow to access the
resulting mix can download one of the edited videos.

||Also, select the best audio tracks, even hop between tracks to avoid localized crown noise. It might take some fancy processing, but it seems like generating stereo or even suround sound ought to be possible as well.
||Great idea! Just thinking about implementing it makes my CompSci C Student brain spin wildly.
||There's an app for that... :D See: Clinch, Jumpcam,
