Do you have any suggestions about resources on generating enclosure 
links for RSS from the emfield module?
I was able to find a page for a screen cast which claims to describe 
this, but the video seems to have been taken down.

Looking at the Media Field configuration:

It claims that the archive.org module supports RSS for video, but not 
for audio.


I downloaded all of the previous videos from twitch/youtube with the 
intention to upload them to archive.org. But I am slow. :)
But which I can get back to doing now, and then hopefully we can embed 
them all in the same way.
I assume you I'll need credentials to uploaded as the 
"Kitchener-Waterloo Linux User Group" Artist/Composer?
