Hey Okhin,

  There are definitely challenges here, but kudos on putting this out
there. I've got several hundred (~600) videos that were submitted to me, in
.webm.  Because of their size, they were probably originally sourced from
video-sharing sites, but am happy to cross-post these.  (They're divided up
by location, with titles as descriptions).

  As you mentioned on the site, the design is pretty stock, but easy to
switch out stylesheets.
