... I will work with the community to figure out what we should do with them.
Unfortunately, Roland's videos are made with v0.16 and older.
FreeCAD received important updates in v0.17 so a lot of his work is now obsolete. This doesn't mean the videos are completely useless, but new users really need to work with newer versions, post v0.16, in order to understand the current workflow. New users using Roland's videos often get confused because the interface and tools no longer match (this is not speculation, we have seen this in the forum).
So, my personal advice is to not worry too much about preserving Roland's videos. Instead, learn from him, and create new videos with a modern version of FreeCAD, say, v0.19. Try recreating the same model that Roland made, but with a v0.19 workflow; in my opinion, this would be more helpful than just storing the older videos as if they were FreeCAD's ultimate treasure.
