No, those videos are made by airplane buffs.

No, because there is no value in recording takeoffs and landings by video. Takeoffs and landings (and a whole lot more flight information) ARE recorded by datalink messaging between the aircraft and ATC or other remote ground stations. For example, when the aircraft leaves the gate, an automated message is sent, with a time/date header. When the gear is raised, another message is sent. When the plane touches down at the destination, another message is sent, and so on. Not only ATC, but the airline dispatchers which sit in a company control center somewhere can send and receive messages too. The system is called ACARS...Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System. WAY more effective than a video camera.
