Any plans to upload them to Commons or Internet Archive, or is this something we can get volunteers to help with?

The only reason is that in general, downloading and keeping videos from YouTube violates their terms of service. Even if they are CC licensed.

Good evening Wikimaniacs!

We now have a distributed effort by multiple volunteers in Hong Kong to upload all the video footage from Wikimania 2013 onto YouTube. If you gave a presentation or workshop at Wikimania (and haven't requested that we don't video you), keep an eye on WMHK's YouTube channel:

The plan is that all videos will be available by the end of February.

We'd be grateful if you can watch your video and see if there are any defects, because we can't watch every second of the uploaded videos to check them!
