//YouTube, Vimeo
$video_options = Array();
$video_options[1] = "YouTube";
$video_options[2] = "Vimeo";

you need to change it to:

//YouTube, Vimeo
//$video_options = Array();
//$video_options[1] = "YouTube";
//$video_options[2] = "Vimeo";

By commenting out these three lines you remove the options to upload from youtube and vimeo from SE.
