Watch at youtube (^) (not recommended):

Youtube.com requires nonfree software (Javascript code) for normal use of the site; after changes Google made in August 2017, nothing is visible in a typical Youtube page without running its nonfree Javascript code.
However, it is ok to refer to the same videos on an offshoot of invidio.us; just make sure not to choose one that is "protected" by Cloudflare, since that sends its own nonfree software. This way of referring is probably fail-safe: it may cease to work, but it will probably not start leading people to run nonfree software. You don't need a special "platform" to post an audio or video on the Web. You can post an audio or video file on any web site. Just put up the WebM file and link to it as if it were an ordinary page. All graphical browsers can handle that.

I suggest that you don't watch the video with the browser, but download it with yt-dlp instead and play it from your hard drive, with a specialised program, particularly if you want to watch it more than once, because: So if you are concerned with global heating, pollution and exhaustion of Earth's resources, you should download all the videos you want to watch.
Александр Савинов - Прекрасное далёко

Слышу голос из прекрасного далёка,
Голос утренний в серебряной росе.
Слышу голос - и манящая дорога
Кружит голову, как в детстве карусель.

Прекрасное далёко!
Не будь ко мне жестоко,
Не будь ко мне жестоко,
Жестоко не будь!
От чистого истока
В Прекрасное далёко,
В Прекрасное далёко
Я начинаю путь.

Слышу голос из прекрасного далёка,
Он зовет меня в чудесные края.
Слышу голос - голос спрашивает строго:
А сегодня что для завтра сделал я?


Я клянусь, что стану чище и добрее
И в беде не брошу друга никогда.
Слышу голос - и спешу на зов скорее
По дороге, на которой нет следа.


I hear a voice from a wondrous future (distance),
The voice of morning in silver dew.
I hear a voice - and an alluring path
Spins my head like a childhood carousel.

Great future!
Don't be cruel to me
Don't be cruel to me
Don't be cruel!
From a pure source
To a beautiful distant future
To a beautiful distant future
I'm starting the journey.

I hear a voice from a wondrous distant future,
It calls me to wonderful lands.
I hear a voice - the voice asks sternly:
What have I done for tomorrow today?


I swear that I will become cleaner and kinder
And I will never leave a friend in trouble.
I hear a voice - and I hasten to call soon
On a path with no traces [yet?].
