I'm still wondering if it might be a good idea to have some extra fields like production company.

No, all links must be direct youtube videos for the xbmc scraper to work. Anything else is rather pointless.

I can totally see DGMurdockIII's point and would also like to support that.

Like I already told you, the Youtube Videos aren't available everywhere (for example Germany is blocking all music videos on Youtube because of the GEMA), neither is VEVO or MTV.
But that shouldn't hold us back from adding the information so it's complete.

A scraper shouldn't hold us back from adding info. The XBMC team could also add compatibility to our new videos hosts then. And the author of MediaElch already said to me, he'll add the music video scraper capability of the AudioDB in an upcoming version.

What other sources for Music Videos are there?

If you could list them, I can always add a new field.

What I don't want to do is make a non standard field that will break any scrapers.

Afaik a non standard field will not break any scraper at all, they just will skip that info.
Same would happen with a site not yet included into XBMC: it just can't launch the url, but it should be just a matter of time, till it has been added to XBMC.
The Addon authors are just insanly fast!

Music Video sites?
Like DGMurdockIII said, there's of course vevo (which is mostly compatible with youtube, means, if there's a video in youtube with <ARTISTNAME>vevo, there's a video on vevo, too), MTV.com and its localized counterparts (I know there are some local music videos of German acts at MTV.de, which are not at MTV.com and vice versa), in Germany the ProSiebenSat1 Media AG has a site called myvideo, with 350.000 music videos licensed to show, located here.
Other than that, I really dunno. There are probably plenty more, some of them local sites. But local sites could be a great source for localized information. Just thinking.

Probably DGMurdockIII knows some more sites.

Unfortunately in the case of XBMC all the scrapers use Regex so the field must be standard youtube clip only.
