/tmp on tmpfs has been default in Fedora for several years now... I was amazed quite recently to learn that other distros are still not doing this. Anyway, the videos would have to go in /var/tmp since they are big. But /var/tmp is not cleaned automatically, so there needs to be some measure to clean up leaked videos in the event of a web process crash.
