The interesting part here is, whether YouTube hosts the resolution of the videos, that are hosted on dev net. I have no experience with that. Additionally, what happens if they are removed from youtube (can that happen?) by someone?

The big issue (from my POV) is that we wanted to open up image upload to anyone, while still somehow keeping the "official" material (such as video) under control. Still, hosting videos has a cost -- could we just embed them from youtube?
