Video is still much heavier than million of tweets.
Please do not open the door of storing video and pics on Hive, as it could quite likely damage that blockchain.

Video probably won't be possible, it would take very long time. I can see a benefits of original art or photos being stored though. Anyway, this is just an experiment.


Compared to text, also photos are enormous.
I totally see your idea, and I remember being disappointed myself when finding out that only text is stored on the blockchain. And even there, scaling has been an issue.
But this simply is the limitation, at least nowadays.
I know this is an experiment, but please be aware of the risk this idea poses. If it becomes usable, you might crash Hive.
