I am a little surprised that someone who owns a 8" Meade is freaking out over a scintillating light - because that's all which is on the footage, a tiny light dot scintillating.
It could be anything from a plane, helicopter to a lantern to a ultra-light flyer or a night parachute jumper - since it's only a dot of light in the night we can spend the next months speculating what it might be and likely never know.
Sidenote: There are many factors which can cause heavy scintillation, the weather (warm air rising the ground), using a telescope indoors through a window (hot air at night rising from the roof etc.) - height of the object over the horizon etc..etc..
