I would in all honesty move to YouTube. In that case, you can use their API
with your web system, including you own payer, etc if you want, and be able
to have your clients upload or what have you without having to create
accounts, etc. I've only briefly looked into it (we're probably going to use
it for a website we're working on since it saves us from having to worry
about it), but it seems like it would be the best for you.

Im my opinion, it's always better to provide your clients with the best you
can offer them. I'm sure retraining won't be an issue at all (especially if
you don't mind them uploading videos to one account and having your site or
what have you manage where they go).
