You can use this word as a noun or as an adjective, and some people even use it as a verb:
He’s watching a video on YouTube.
Note: The word "video" has become popular over the last thirty to forty years. Film was once the dominant medium for capturing images in photography and the making of movies. Gradually, magnetic tape and digital storage replaced film. Video was cheaper and easier to work with, and that is still true today.
Digital video now goes onto a memory card, a hard drive, or it’s stored somewhere in cyberspace.
