Nick Pope recently retweeted a little article about this that you might find insightful in this regard.

You fail to understand that the UFO myth is so commonplace in the world today, that a typical UFO sightings of a bright light in the sky is pretty much a "ho-hum," non-event these days. Further, most handheld cell phone videos are lousy and have absolutely no value except for friends. Putting one of those bad shaky, objects or bright light vids on ATS or elsewhere on the web is asking for ridicule, hardly worth the effort these days.
Finally, we can plainly see in UFO threads--such as you plainly illustrate here--that many people tend to be dismissive of the whole topic without any seriousness and relegate it to "alien illuminati or lizard men type(s)" and "trailer park populations."

After decades of trial and error, the military and privatized aerospace contractors are doing a better job of keeping their advanced man-made technology out of sight and out of mind.

I was just reading an article the other day that had a graph of reported sightings by decade and the 2010's had over twice as much as any other decade. II figured the most would be in the 50's. I will see if I can find the graph and post it here.
As far as videos, It wouldn't surprise me at all if there are more now. The problem is, I can't believe any of them anymore. Video and photo manipulation software is just too readily available and cheap. It is also incredibly realistic and improving all the time. I'm afraid we've reached a point where photographic or video evidence cannot be trusted.
It's just funny I haven't seen a good UFO video since prob 2000

While meandering through another thread a question popped into my head.
Are UFO sightings with video increasing or decreasing???
Obviously they should have ballooned 1,000 fold, since now everyone has a camera at all times, but I'm betting the real results have been the exact opposite. With the vast majority of sightings conviently dropping in lock step with the invention of cell phone cameras.
