    Its done via google video site map generator.

    You need to host video at your end, may at Amazon S3 or on your own server.

    Can I really get away with using the same video over and over again like this guy did?

    Looks like you can, Google doesn't really pays attention on it's content. But i would at least change the thumbnail of the video if that is possible.
