Then you can go find the video and look for the inconsistancies with the delivery and have the coaches work with them to fix the issue.
Bingo, but I also want to say this...Add something onto what you mentioned or didn't mention.
Lets say Cincinnati does this first and they only record their own pitchers. I don't mind the scouts seeing the video, but that can also prompt trades for really no reason other than "I think I see his flaw..lets try this." Leave them team exclusive at first.
This allows the pitching coaches to see players flaws in real time, instead of having to break down what he saw in the game a day or two later..perhaps getting something wrong himself. You can visiually show the pitcher how it affected his pitch, location, and break etc.
This can make fringe prospects possibly decent prospects...Think of the possiblities.
