I don't think that's all that's needed. There will be Wikimedians scouring
the Internet for all free video in all of its forms (of which there is quite
a lot) and uploading it to Commons. You'll need an entire encoding farm.
Hard drives are cheap, its true, but redundant storage is less cheap as a
function of reliability.
