Add an option to disable video transcoding

Reported by: OsamaK Owned by:

Currently, all uploaded videos must be transcoded to WebM which makes MediaGoblin much more difficult to deploy on shared-hosting servers due to expensive video processing and additional library dependencies.

There should be an option to disable transcoding and to allow WebM uploads only and directly without trascoding.

In case other formats are uploaded, the standard error message can be shown: "I do not support this format. :("

Ticket #757 related to this issue. There's at least a workaround for when the transcoding fails.

The video plugin has configuration options to specify what conditions must be met to skip video transcoding. If those conditions are met, videos will not be transcoded. I think that satisfies the issue raised in this 5-year old ticket, so I'm going to close this.
