Hey Matt!

There was a ... try to actually consolidate this to the resources/ folder  
that everyone installs. Because we need support files, and quite often  
they can be the same.

This is what's there currently, only a h264 mp4 and a webm file:

Since then, however, we have changed from having many many repositories,  
to have one web-platform-tests repo. That has its own media folder:

I would propose you to figure out if you can make do with what you already  
find in the repository. It is possible to copy around since git does  
deduplication (although most filesystems doesn't do dedup on the actual  
checkout). If you make anything new that is generally useful, /media/  
might also be a fitting place.

For everything else, please don't make it bigger than needed, but it  
should be fine to put it inside a support/ folder like Brad mentioned.  
IMHO :-)
