    Re: Video of theirs

    Does it mean they filmed themselves on their own. They made their own video?

    Re: Video of theirs

    If they made the video on their own, without help,you'd say by themselves. Your sentence means that the video they made features them in it- a selfie video.

    Re: Video of theirs

    "By themselves" means they filmed them without anybody's help.

    "Of themseves" means they got a video made thay features them in It.
