Just to be sure: what do mean by "click on the video"? do only that or play the video?

From my side, just clicking on the video does not mark the document as modified.
Tested in current master and
If I play the video, then the document status is changed to modified.

Set status to NEEDINFO, please set it back to UNCONFIRMED once requested
informations are provided.

Best regards. JBF
