Since some have voiced concerns with Flash, we can record video in WebM
(supported by Chrome, Firefox, and Opera) and use the YouTube HTML5 player.

We still need to figure out how translations will be handled. Here are some
options that come to mind:

1. Each translator records their own video (time consuming)
2. Each video has different audio streams, you merely select which audio
you want to use through the player. (most desirable option)
3. YouTube supports captions, so each translator can just add new captions
to each video. (simplest and quickest option)
3. Each video has different versions uploaded. Same content but different
narration (harder to keep track of videos)

What are your thoughts?
