Today I tried to upload a funny video from Fosdem to Youtube and to be able to embed it into my webpage as a webm movie (The conversion from mp4 to webm was quick via ffmpeg under fedora. I like it!) , but it fails. IT always offers me their buggy Flash interface. On other websites I am getting message like this:

The file extension is not allowed. Please choose a video file.

Yeah, right !
I will have to find a video hosting service and will use my own

I care about privacy, ethical design, and freedom in many aspects. I spend 20+ years working as a web developer and architect, analyst, manager, and product owner/manager in different environments, several countries, and multiple software industries like Healthcare and Hospitality. I wore many hats, and I use the knowledge gathered to optimize the flow of value across complex systems.
