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.
Илья Лазарев - «Летать»

Вновь с неба бездонного
тихо звезда упадет.
Тьма города сонного
в плен полуночный возьмёт.
И не узнать
и не понять,
как я сумею летать.

Летать, расправив крылья,
над целым миром
могу я лишь во сне.
Мечтать, даря свободу
своим полётам
в небесной вышине.
Летать, летать…

В снах нет невозможного,
вера в них есть и любовь.
Страх самого сложного
тает среди облаков.
И не узнать,
и не понять,
как над Землёю летать.


Прочь сброшу сомнения дня!
Ночь учит меня,
как в жизни уверенней стать,
как научиться летать.

To fly above the blue skies
and reach the new stars –
the magic, born at night.
To dream beneath the Moonglow
long as the tune flows
over the cloudy heights.
To fly, so high
and my wings spread wide…


Again from the abysmal sky
quietly a star will fall.
The darkness of the sleepy city
will take the midnight prisoner.
And not to know
and not to understand
how I will be able to fly.

I can fly with my wings
spread over the whole world
only in a dream.
To dream, giving freedom
to their flights
in the sky above.
Fly, fly…

There is nothing impossible in dreams,
there is faith in them, and love.
The fear of what is most difficult
melts among the clouds.
And not to know,
and not to understand
how to fly over the Earth.


Away I will cast the doubts of the day!
The night teaches me
how to become more confident in life,
how to learn to fly.
