If it's all in digital (and not DV tape), then it shouldn't be hard
for most people to run a quick and dirty transcode script over it and
then upload. I would volunteer, except then you need to find a way to

doing the encoding in working out what kind of paramaters to pass to
mencoder or Handbrake.
