    .mov and .mp3 can contain javascript. See these 2 examples from with 'alert("hello from backdoor")' added to them: So don't allow embed video or sound from any source you don't know to be safe. Allowing video from youtube and google are ok because they are suppose to be safe.

    I've taken a look at the HTMLformatter extension but it doesn't seem to add any interface for uploading videos, which is a problem when your users are not web-savvy. What's the easiest method for allowing all users to post images and video? I noticed the FCKeditor extension but when I've used this software in the past found it very slow to load, even on lite mode.

    What are you using for your web server scripting language? If you use PHP you can always compress the output using gzip. ASP does as well, but I don't know ASP :).
