This is almost a 4 hour video (as such, with a surprising upvote velocity)

The relevant 4 minutes (9:00-13:00), as claimed by the page title: 1) Common rules for the internet 2) Liability exemptions will be the same for all internet and hosting providers. 3) Create a single marketplace for digital services. 4) Ensure that digital services are guaranteed to everyone in the union. 5) Ensure that countries receiving digital services are not prohibiting services

#5 is the weird one as it's not clear at first if he's for or against prohibiting services targeting some countries, as a retaliatory or punitive measure.

You are mistaken. 9:00 and 13:00 refers to the CET times when this 4 hour session was scheduled to start and end.

(Internet Regulation is an important topic. Upvotes increases the chance of getting meaningful comments on the article.)

I don't plan on watching a 4 hour video to understand the Greens party's position on internet regulation. Is there a condensed version with their positions and proposals available?

video is hosted by the green. But the panel is the "Directorate‑General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology" (DG CONNECT)

they are present in pretty most of the policy and standardization discussions which makes it highly relevant imo.
