So far Qt Studio has been *the* place for Qt videos, independent of whether they were made for Qt commercial or Nokia or anybody else. I can't see a problem with having these videos there. The more we have, the better for Qt IMO.

I can't see how it has been repurposed. The fact that Digia uploaded some of their video material there is IMO not a problem. There are just as many videos promoting Nokia's Qt usage there, as well as some content relating to e.g. ICS or froglogic.
