If you want help, then help us. Post a screen shot of WinDirStat, and if that link did finally work, then investigate the paths of where it thinks those videos are located.

Have you tried to unhide hidden file and folders, even system files and folders? WinDirStat doesn't lie. It shows what's there.

In Explorer, you click Tools, then Folder Options then under View, you select the options to Show Hidden Files and Folders, and uncheck the option to Hide System Files. After words, you can always go back to the settings you had before. If the Tools menu isn't showing in Explorer, hit the ALT key.

In WinDirStat, click on the little + box in front of 'Users' and continue to click on the + boxes of the big ticket items. Then you'll find what is taking the space.

And if you want, you can delete the files from within WinDirStat - right click on them.

I'm a little embarassed to admit this, but I've used WinDirStat for years, and never knew that. I've never had a situation like the OP, so if I've found what's taking up so much space, I've gone to that folder. Good to know!!
