If you like videos, that's true, but it also wastes bandwidth, which can be a problem for people who are on metered service plans. Even videos that don't autoplay download something when they load. Plus, nobody is going to watch your "how to set up my addon" video more than once, so it's still just a waste of page space for the majority of people viewing your addon page.

If you really think your addon needs a video, and you really don't want people to go to youtube.com to watch it, post it in a forum thread and link to that.

Also, you should always provide some text equivalent if your video is informational, so that the information is available to people who can't (for example, deaf people) or won't (for example, me, or people with limited bandwidth) watch the video.
