Did you change anything in your .htaccess?
Be sure there is no rule in the .htaccess file that could fire a 403 or 404 page instead of the video.
Here are some examples of .htaccess code that could cause this problem:
RewriteRule wp-content/plugins/(.*\.php)$ - [R=404,L]
RewriteRule ^wp\-content/plugins/.*\.(?:php[1-7]?|pht|phtml?|phps)\.?$ - [NC,F] (automatically added by WeSecur Security plugin)
Solution: Remove any .htaccess line that could alter php files inside the plugins folder.
