As I mentioned in the audio ticket (#39995), the widget would ideally handle both a locally hosted video file along with videos from major hosting platforms like YouTube, Vimeo, and VideoPress. One this is split into a standalone widget, we should evaluate whether it makes sense to handle embedding from third-parties in v1 or wait for a v2.

There's been previous exploration into embedding from third-party video services in #38172.
