Those are very reasonable objections against making YouTube the *only*
accessible location for the videos.  But why not offer them as torrents on
your own website (as you've already done), and also upload them to YouTube
for convent viewing?  If YouTube does something nasty to the videos,
doesn't matter as the originals still exist.  If people want to download
the originals, that's okay because they still exist.
