Could someone who knows their way around Developer Tools please tell me if there is any hidden video associated with this archived website, or am I wasting my time? This episode and the only other two existing episodes in the series used to be hosted on oppetarkiv.se but were taken down for unknown reasons.
I'm using Windscribe VPN to put myself in Sweden but I'm not sure if it's necessary.

tools would, or should, point to the actual host of the video (rather than the host of the original website)
But my own experience of archive.org (and that includes my own site) is that it does not go that deep. Even my own site, which all files are hosted 'locally', does not return all pages there. So if you can actually see the true link if it is no longer hosted there then you really are wasting your time.
The files are either there or they're not. archive.org takes snapshots of the main pages of a site, it doesn't spider the entire site and save everything, especially videos and AFAIK, nothing hosted offsite.
My second go to answer after "Try archive.org" is to try different search engines worldwide. Bing, Yahoo, Duckduckgo, etc. Duckduckgo in particular will often give you completely different results than Google. In your case, try Eurocentric search engines. You might even try TOR oriented engines, but be careful as it can take to so some very sketchy and outright illegal sites.
Bottom line, the internet is much, much, much larger than any of the big three search engines lead to you believe. Just be extremely careful about how you do your searches have good a good anti-virus and malware software installed.
