(I searched on forum topics, but I found any topic related about videoclips.)

We know, we have a horrendous past - when we think about Thor, Iron Maiden, Running Wild, Manowar videoclips - and several clips in a reasonable quality (I don't mean professional videoclips, but those ones which we can breathe without nausea after watch them :P)...
What about to include a session on band's profiles contemplating band's official videoclips?
Youtube and several other "webTVs" have official band profiles, record label profiles, etc. I think videoclips must gain a permanent space on band's profiles.

What do you think about?

Official profiles on video sites are already linked if they have them, such as YouTube profiles. Band sites often have videos as one component. Most of the time it would just be a YouTube link, if anything, thus unnecessary. Few bands have more than one official video page.

Thanks for replying me, Zodijackyl, but I mean adding a tab on album info, e.g.:
Search for Album title: Divine Intervention - Slayer
Tabs available: Songs | Lineup | Reviews | Additional Notes | Videoclip

On Videoclip tab, we could see Dittohead and Serenity in Murder clips attached directly to watch inside EM page. I mean, it's easiest way to see what videoclip(s) was(were) produced to that album. Of course, only approved related sources.

MA does not host media, and is very unlikely to start doing so - we focus on being an encyclopedia, and the logistics of licensing/handling media are impractical. More or less any official video of anything ever can be found on YouTube.

for most albums, the videos made off it are listed in the additional notes. some better users (unilke me, for.ex) also hyperlink the videos on youtube, so what you're asking for is more or less here already, even if very, very slightly less readily available.
