Whew, thanks for saying "up to 2" because what I do with my videoblog is 
use a custom cgi for the enclosure url, which redirects to ourmedia.org, 
which then redirects to archive.org for the .mov file.

I do this because I use Ourmedia to upload the video (which is stored at 
the Internet Archive) but want the aggregators to use the url on my site 
for logging purposes.

I've been having to do a few curl commands with each post to manually 
add the enclosure data, but fixing WP's code would be quite helpful.
