First of all thanks for replying and... Ouch! After that I hope D Foundation learned the lesson and keep the videos themselves instead of relying in third party next time.

2017 was the last time the Foundation did not obtain copies of the videos. The YouTube channel started in 2018 and from that time and on into the future the Foundation has hosted and will host all of the DConf videos. And we'll soon have our own copies of all of the 2015 videos in case the UVU channel goes away some day.

I think it's time to have a Wayback Machine version for videos.

A few of the 2013/14 videos are in the Internet Archive. They have to be uploaded manually. Someone created a D account for it and uploaded them there at some point. When I created the Foundation's channel, I downloaded those and ripped the rest of the 2013/14 videos from various YouTube accounts, then uploaded them to our channel. So we have everything now except the 2016/17 copies.
