this'll be on my videotape

alright, so here's the deal. i wanted to put some videos on my linkroll. but they're all hosted on youtube[0]it turns out that video hosting is expensive, so we have a monopoly run by the world's largest advertising firm, which presented two problems:

  1. they all share the url youtube dot com, which seems rather antithetical to the purpose of the list
  2. the ?v= codes are all very opaque

so i'm putting them here instead; divided into two groups: channels outputting constistently good content, and important videos

quality channels
