Had to read through the entire thread before I realized that your use of the word 'dead' was meant in a literal sense and not metaphorical.
With the increase in inexpensive storage space, I only remove contacts which I can't remember any details about. If a person has passed away, they are still in there. If I look through the list and see their name, it is a reminder of the good times we shared.
Otherwise any contact I made over the course of my life or career might be useful down the line, even if I need to make an effort to track them down. On the other hand if it is a person that I don't wish to associate with any more, I move them to the blocked contact section instead.
It would work better if you did not capture and encode a video. Instead, you could try to process each frame with the help of the graphics processor on the fly. And you could lower the frame rate to give it more time. Shirley you don't need so many almost identical frames.

I have been working on a little dotnet core project that will allow users to create their own site and then post to it. It's really an interesting experiment so I can learn the underlying technologies -- and I've learned a ton so far.

HTTPS & HTTP Still Work
The additionally interesting thing is that I updated the dotnet core site with the existing (and very limited prototype code) and everything is now working perfectly under HTTPS and still works under HTTP if the user selects that.
Cool VStudio Deployment
Mostly, I'm shocked that it still works. I'm also amazed at how easy VStudio 2017 and dotnet core make it to publish your web site. Serious CI and very cool. Also cool that you can test so easily on localhost:<port> then deploy to your prod site and it just works.
