We looked into doing this about 3 to 6 months ago, if I remember 
correctly, and decided that the technical and political hurdles were 
just too much to worry about at the time.  For instance, we would need:

    * a server on which to store the video
    * a high bandwidth internet connection for the server to stream out
      the video on request
    * someone to actually record the meetings and post the video to the
    * everyone to sign a disclaimer stating that they are OK with being
      recorded and having that recording being posted on the internet
      (or something similar if not an actual form to sign -- basically,
      look at the legal issues of it)
    * how do we back up that video data on the server in the event of a
    * who is responsible for it?

While I think it would be awesome to have our meetings recorded, I know 
that I really don't want to try and tackle all of this.  However, that 
being said, I have a Cisco IP/TV server that will take raw video input 
from a camcorder and convert it into a unicast/multicast video data 
stream; consider it "donated" to SVLUG assuming someone can make the 
whole system work(from recording to streaming to storing the data to 
replaying it on demand).
