I suspect it would it be a possible to create a script that downloads 
the media and changes the video tag to reflect local.

That would schools to create a version of the EPUB they can distribute 
to students that has the resource local rather than remote.

I'm not familiar with epub but if it is standard xml then it certainly 
is possible.
