    On the amazon T.O.S it states that the clicks have to originate from your site.
    However I've seen people like "unboxtherapy" clearly post all their affiliate links in the description. (they make all their money from amazon affiliates but reviewing the products)
    So I guess if the videos are related it wouldn't be a problem but you'll get the best answer by asking them yourself.

    You might get away with it for a while -- but I'd imagine at some point = Ban

    Much better long term strategy to point them at your Site.

    Amazon has been making changes to their TOS - targeting people using BH type methods so best
    be smart as to your strategies.
