Video is way more then still images and that's just recording and storing, live streaming the  data from anywhere in world would be a fortune and would demand a whole new infrastructure.
So each pilot gets an Ipad?  :P
I just found a new supply of forks!

Why is it that in the year 2015, there is no live video of every operating room being transmitted (and recorded) to a medical malpractice investigator base? Wouldn't this end all speculation about what happened, and give a clear picture?

Or insert ANY profession where there is a possibility of human mess-ups (namely any profession involving humans).

Do you have any idea how much data that would take to record, transmit, and store from every cockpit in the air?

Meh. Poor comparison.

How often do you hear of surgeons deliberately killing patients? How often is malpractice deliberate? A video would only be of benefit to an ambulance-chasing lawyer. Sounds like it would cause more damage than good.

If we had live video feeds of aircraft cockpits, we would know exactly what happened in the last three air disasters.

How often is a plane crash the result of deliberate action by the pilot?

Planes have a hard enough time maintaining communication over some parts of the Atlantic in bad weather. Live streaming video would take making entirely new infrastructure...

And what if we had video footage confirming without a doubt that the co-pilot intentionally took down the plane, how would that help us?

We'd be informed, but who said this guy wouldn't have passed their psych screening?

I don't know enough about live streaming infastructure to argue with you. However, there is certainly no reason why they can't at least RECORD video the same way they record audio. Instead of saying "he was breathing, so he must have been conscious", you would actually be able to see what happened.

Everyone could sue claiming they should have had better test.  :)

Victim's families will always sue and win FWIU. If this is just about giving them grounds for claims I think we can find cheaper methods.

+1
That would be a big expense and it won't even help with saving any lives. If you want them to invest have them invest in better screening...

Let's face it, do we really know with absolute certainty that the co-pilot deliberately crashed the plane, or are we going with this theory because it makes the most sense based on the audio recording?

A video can not only reveal WHAT happened, but it can also reveal HOW and sometimes WHY.

It's all cost vs. benefit. How many lives would be saved by installing cameras? How much more information can be learned from video vs. voice recording? Can we spend this money in ways that will save more lives?

Let's not even think how much slower the airplane WIFI would be if there were 2 ipads live recording ;D

I wonder how http://www.flightradar24.com/ gets their data?

Funny I mentioned them and now (yesterday, actually) flightradar24 has given evidence to the authorities showing the plane went into auto-descent to 100 feet via autopilot.

The authorities might be reading DDF  :P
