    So, I notice that a lot of the videos linked to on ED no longer exist. There must be some way to back them up, so this doesn't happen as much.

    That's why we need something organized. I don't think we could spare the server space, though...maybe some method of storing them on the hard drives of volunteers? Although there are some definite problems with that.

    It would be a copyright issue to store them all on the site's servers. The only thing I could think of, but do not recommend, is hosting your own video hosting clone and using the links therein. The issue then is getting it to play nice with MediaWiki.
