Using video in the digital humanities

This topic has a couple of different facets.  One is encouraging scholars to use video as primary source material in their research and work.  Discuss why this isn’t done more often and what we can do to help encourage it.  The other is the technical challenge of using video in digital humanities.  Is it not used because of the challenges of access and what can we do to overcome these challenges.  We should also expand the discussion into digital humanities classroom use for teaching, as oppose to just scholarly research.
