How about this: we talked about preparing a checklist for the speaker.
How about we add to that list a question, "Do you object to being
recoreded?" with options for audio, video, or neither.  We can take

I'm willing to bet that 99% of speakers will not object.

nobody else does, then I'm OK with just dropping it.
