    If you post the video on a thread, I believe it just needs to be relevant to the thread. If you post it on a profile post, I believe anythings fine as long as it's not inappropriate.

    To evaluate further on the subject, this means that you should not just be creating threads to promote your youtube videos, however if you want to start a debate or some sort of discussion about the video that is perfectly fine.

    In response to your post question, it’s fine to create a thread showing and promoting your own channel (normally one will do a channel trailer), however you can’t create a thread for every single video you make. As @Soup said, don’t promote videos, create a channel trailer or promotional video, and create one thread for it to promote your channel.

    In response to your thread title question, it’s best to put it in off topic as it doesn’t relate to any game modes. It could be argued that you can put it in the game mode discussion that is featured (example, if you featured mci, it would be mci discussion section). However, to be safe it’s best to put it in off topic. If you want to promote your own videos further, the appropriate place would be your status update section. Also, don’t spam a video with 5 status update posts, as it is not only against the rules, and pointless because we will delete all but one and you will receive a warning, but it also blocks all other status update posts.

    As the user’s question has been answered, I’ll be locking this now.
