I've finished replacing all the videos that went down with the video library, and like I predicted, the ones I can't get elsewhere are almost all IGN interviews. The videos that can't be replaced with the same video (or that I don't know the exact video are at Category:Videos from the Wikia Video Library; four out of five (the ones with links on their pages) were definitely from IGN. Do you happen to have any of the videos in that category?
(If you don't, I have what I think are adequate alternatives I can add to the wiki, but I figured I'd see if you have any of the exact videos first, since you mentioned having some interviews specifically.)
I do have some videos from IGN; however, I will have to wait until tomorrow to check for them because I can't access my computer right now. I will get back to you tomorrow night, apologies for the wait.
You're welcome! While I didn't have any of those videos beforehand, I was able to download the first three (just not the Moore / Silverman / McBrayer one) but I can't upload them because the page is saying "This file is bigger than the server is configured to allow.". Any advice on where to go from here? The files range between 30-66 MB.
Also, this might be a topic for another thread, but do you know if there's a glitch with the badge counters? My "Main Character" badge counter reset to 1 yesterday after I had a >250 day streak, even though I never missed a day since June (I even checked my Contributions and there were no gaps). Does this have to do with Feb. 28 and the system trying to figure out if it's a leap year or something? I'm just confused (and a little bummed).
Hmm... I can't see a gap, either. I would say you might try contacting Wikia staff in case they can do anything, but I sort of doubt they will? (I have... little faith in Wikia staff. Maybe they would do something. But I wouldn't put much faith in it happening. (If you do contact them, it might be useful to know that the default name for that badge is "Wiki Hero!".))
As for the videos, there appears to be a 10 MB limit on-wiki, so they probably would need uploading somewhere else... hmm... :-/ *starts thinking of whether that's a good idea or I should just find alternatives*
Thanks for the tip, though I can understand your feelings about the staff after this whole debacle. I'll look into it.
As for the videos, I could try to see if there's a way to compress them. I tried converting them from MP4 to OGV but that made them even larger. Do you know if it's possible to make some kind of file storage/hosting site account for the wiki and link the videos from there? If Wikia works with Drive or something, I could upload everything I have on there.
