No LCA has ever guaranteed post-presentation video.  There is a reason for this.

We're a volunteer run conference, and while the conference typically
gets optimised for the better each year, we're not at the point of
having fail-safe everything.  Things go wrong, and while the
organisers and volunteers do a fantastically great job, not everything
can be controlled.  We could guarantee these things, but then LCA
would be 5x-10x the price, and lose something in the process.

If we get speakers in a room, and a bunch of delegates to listen to
them, we have an LCA.  Anything else is a bonus :-)
