    Hello!
    Can you tell me please is it correct to say
    "Video with man who like ***"
    or "video with" - is incorrect form?

    Not sure what you're trying to say....
    Would it be "This is a video about a man who likes ***"?

    It's not terrible to say "a video with [something] in it", but the way it was worded above makes me think "about" is more appropriate than "with".

    Thank you for the answer.
    Example:
    Vintage video with a man who likes drinking bear

    Now that I'm reading it in that form, I'd use the word "of". Also, not sure of what's meant by "vintage", unless it's actually a super old video.

    "Vintage video of a man who likes drinking beer!"
