And specifically, I don't want summit to have to poll a json file on
veyepar.nextdayvideo.com to construct the links to the videos on
meetings-archive.debian.net.  These links should be static and predictable,
and not depend on an external resource that may be a one-off from the POV of
DebConf (since it's not clear to me that Carl will be involved in video for
DC15, or if it's decided that we will use veyepar next year, or that the
schema for finding the json files themselves is in any way stable).

I think you misunderstood: the data you want is static. The slug for summit talk id=134 will always be "HPs_OpenStack_Helion_Debian_all_the_way_down"

"http://meetings-archive.debian.net/Public/debian-meetings/2014/debconf14/" + slug + ".webm"


You can rely on that URL being correct for summit talk id=134.  same for all talks.

The comment about things changing is because you (Steve) asked for code,  but to get the value you want you need the original talk title that may no longer exist in Summit's db if the talk title changed.

We don't have a good grip on what talks in summit will and wont ever have a video, so I am not sure if you want to construct and add the URL of a video that may never exist.

I don't understand that request, hopefully it is answered above.
