Interesting OP. Thanks for this.
I believe that there were giants, or what they called giants back then.

The subject of Giants existing in our past is always fascinating. I will have to point out something, though.
I have been to Jordan this year, on a family trip, and we visited the City of Petra. Sorry, but I don't think there were any giants there. The constructions, the water system, tools, houses, everything I have seen is man-size, not Giant size.
That doesn't mean giants never existed. I just don't buy the theory that they lived in Petra. Also, Petra was one of the most hidden cities I have seen, which goes against this theory of a huge city towering high up to the skies. The romans had a hard time even finding it! Which wouldn't be the case if the city was so obviously out there with towering constructions.
Angus Mòr MacAskill, frequently referred to as Giant MacAskill (1825 – August 8, 1863), was known as the world's largest "true" giant (normal proportions, no growth abnormalities). The 1981 Guinness Book of World Records lists Angus as the tallest natural giant who ever lived, the strongest man who ever lived, and the man having the largest chest measurements of any non-obese man (80 inches, or 2,000 mm).
As a child he was also said to be of normal stature, but in entering his adolescence he began to grow rapidly and by his 20th year had attained 7 ft 4 in (2.24 m), eventually reaching 7 ft 9 in (2.36 m) within another year or two. His early adult weight was 425 pounds (193 kg), but usually was over 500 pounds (230 kg). His shoulders were 44 inches (110 cm) wide, and the palm of his hand 8 inches (20 cm) wide and 12 inches (30 cm) long; by 1863 he was wearing boots 17.5 inches (44 cm) long. He had deep-set blue eyes, a musical, if somewhat hollow voice and a mild and pleasant manner. Despite his size he was well proportioned.

Of course there were giants. You think a 6 foot tall, 500 year old, 180 man made the Ark?
Nope. Noah was a very large, giant, human being...

I have no idea if giants existed, but please do keep in mind that the video in the OP contains many images of well known/documented hoaxes ... that in itself all but kills the cred of the video
