I'd make the same request. A little bit ago, I went to try to find the 
audio stream for a recent meeting, and was perplexed that the recordings 
no longer existed. I'm sympathetic to the concerns that Michael 
expressed; I also note that, even if you're willing to deal with big 
tech platforms, the inability to download a local copy of material from 
YouTube is a very unfortunate drawback.

As an aside: prior to the youtubization of sessions, it was possible to 
grab the individual media components from the meetecho recordings, which 
was *even nicer*. For example, the HRPCRG had a very interesting spot in 
their session where EFF's Eva Galperin gave a slide-free talk that I 
shared with some colleagues. In the old format, I could have pointed to 
the speaker video stream, which would have been nice. On YouTube, the 
lack of slides meant that the speaker view was rendered as 1/16th of the 
frame in the upper-right-hand corner, while the remaining 15/16ths of 
the screen was blank. I'm not necessarily asking for that format to be 
restored, but it would make for a replacement of the MP3 streams that 
isn't merely adequate, but actually quite superior.
