You may not use Wikipedia as a source of evidence for your paper or video. That being said, I do suggest its use as a way to build background knowledge on a topic. Calling up prior knowledge or creating knowledge about a topic where none was before is essential to learning. Wikipedia is a good site for the purpose of pre-search, or educating yourself about the main points of a topic before you dig into its details.
