The file has to be stored somewhere. You cannot just load the file in BFs because of their severe file size limits. Many of the free file storage services have moved to pay sites. I will not use a cloud due to their false claims of security. I discovered at work that the network that used the cloud from our work computers to print files to the shared office printer through the cloud, allowed the transmitted files to be accessed from outside the network; you should have seen the shock on the IT guys face when I told him about it.

There are soooo many ways to host files, and if you are willing to pay a modest fee, the sky is the limit.

I use IPFS and can host from anywhere, perhaps beyond the skill-set of most Internet users, however it is free, and quite effective.

Also, never assume there is any security with anything that is remotely hosted, treat whatever you put online the same as a postcard.

Back to the topic at hand, I had a cam on my helmet on a ride last summer and I ran into a cop while i was coming out of a park restroom. He had a lot of good comments about my "body-cam" as he called it. He also pointed out that there was a place on the departments webpage for submitting cam footage, even if it had nothing to do with me. in all, it was a very positive encounter.
