Dear Victor,

Thank you for the great explanation. I myself have often experienced
problems with the videos on Wikipedia or Wikimedia Commons, especially on a
mobile device. So if youtube makes it (realistically) possible that people
can our videos, I am fine with that. You pointed out rightly that Wikipedia
articles have external links too, although the analogy may not fit 100%.

Sometimes discussions about FLOSS reminds me of some Esperanto speakers who
prefer it if communication does not happen at all, if in the wrong language
(such as English)...

Kind regards
