I find audio and video of the primary speaker and the slides very
valuable. I'm a little lost as to why people want video of the crowd or
those asking questions. Why isn't audio sufficient for that?
It's hard to get up the confidence to ask a question in front of a
crowd, especially a very smart crowd. Being on video raises that bar
even further. I think videoing audience speakers is detrimental to the
quality of the live event, and doesn't raise the quality of the video
enough to justify that.
