One way we could address this is with language packs of videos.
We'd package the translated pages, subtitles and all, in the
main package, but split the translated videos into per-locale

I just added support for the Mallard Conditionals lang test
token[1] to Yelp, which means we could have something like
this on the index page:

<if:if test="!lang:C action:install"
  <p>You can watch these videos in your language if you install a
  language pack.</p>
  <p><link action="install:getting-started-cz" style="button">Make
  it so.</link></p>

This would only show up in translated versions (more precisely,
copies without an xml:lang attribute). Unfortunately, we don't
yet have a way to hide it after the package is installed.
