Better suggestion: use Archive.org, and help contribute to an open and accessible internet archive. https://archive.org/web/

They're a very serious and legit non-profit.

FTR, video can be streamed from archive.org just like youtube. It looks almost identical. There is a thumbnail for the person to see and if they choose to click on it, the video will begin playing.

This worked for me on Diaspora and I assume it will work here as well.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much music there is there. Also, I sometimes communicate by posting links to the lyrics or guitar tablature of a well know piece of music rather than the video that is hosted on the google data mining site that uses video streaming as a trojan horse.

It's easier if the other person isn't a musician or deeply invested in the music industry, so I don't claim to be any sort of a saint or anything, but I did want to share that archive.org is a serious alternate, free, and ethical source of media these days.
