Not trying to be a wet blanket but just wondering what you are going to do
with this list of clips? Given the positions taken on FAIR USE on this list
previously, all that is allowed is writing about them and remembering (if
you've seen) them ala Proust. Not very video, if you ask me.

I vote for FAIR USE that allows excerpts without permission.
