Send videos from the Comments section inside JIRA

In a company with multiple projects, every employee should be well aware of every task they are dealing with. Complete knowledge of the project improves the work quality and efficiency. A short video covering the critical points with required information can help them take it as a reference and it reduces the need to approach other employees for an explanation when a video guide is attached.
