The answer’s way simpler, really. I can simply use Micropub to post video links to my website, and run youtube-dl on the resulting “feed”—a plain-text list, in fact, is all it needs. (Guess what I’ve just built!)
A daily cron job on my severely underpowered media server does the rest. Also, I’m currently using a hardcoded “bearer token” to access the not-so-public list, but there’s really no reason to not expose an actual (h-)feed for these posts.
Guess I’ll be fixing the code that converts WordPress tags to hashtags, too. *adds to to-do list*
