First of all, let me prefix my answer to your OP, by saying that I believe that alien intelligences are a mathematical certainty. Out there in the depths of the void, there must be another species which have developed sentience and intelligence.
However, one thing that has always upset me rather, is when persons insist that they have proof, when what they have is video. What is the most a video can tell you about an object, which nine times out of ten is a blur, or a ball of light, or what have you? It can tell you very little. Furthermore, video "evidence" can be tampered with an awful lot more convincingly than one would initially credit. The technology that allowed the first forays into hyper realism in 3D design, are now at the fingertips of anyone with the money and the know how to purchase and make use of them, and even the consideration of cost is not what it once was, due to drops in the price of the technology required.
One cannot call video PROOF. Proof is a very specific word. One can call it evidence, but calling it proof is not the same thing, or indeed accurate. Proof would be collecting samples of blood analogues, skin samples, footprints, slivers of the material of which the vessel an alien being would be traveling in, a piece of equipment dropped by a panicked traveler as he boards his ship under fire, desiring nothing more than to collapse back in his grav-throne and dust off as quickly as possible, to escape the yokel farmer and his rude and noisy metal tube.
