Sorry, but not sorry!

Oh boy, sounds like a real challenge.The filenames never matched the cwcki articles. Like virtually none of them. I have the archive.org archive of the cwcvillelibrary account. It grabbed the youtube titles.
The technique I use to identify most of the videos involves googling the old video ID. For example:
But sometimes some videos don't come up when you search their video ID. I might have the video, I just can't tell. I've got like 1100 videos in my Chris folder.
- If you right click on the old video, you can get the URL to the original youtube video: youtu.be/F8bZd5PLX1s
- Then I google just the video ID. One of the top results includes this URL: https://www.youtube.com/all_comments?v=F8bZd5PLX1s&lc=Ljed-Jpz5I1gCuQul1WwB6HkJD1qLSEG8F-2_uQFvMg
- That seems to be the comment page for the video we're looking for. However, since that video is gone, we need to look up the cached version.
- And now we see that F8bZd5PLX1s's youtube name is The Chronicles of Chris-chan: World of Workoutcraft [10/19/2010]
Edit: Heh, and actually, once we get these videos up, going through and mapping them to the cwcki page is going to be a bitch for the same reasons. But at the very least we'll have them preserved. Well, and I'm dividing them up by time period, at the very least.
