Thanks for reporting. I could reproduce the issue at my end.
This seems to be a bug with "Cheese" webcam application.

Coming to your query:

1) To open your recorded videos simply do the following:
Open Dolphin file browser -> Click on Home (/home/user) on the left pane -> Webcam (locate the Webcam directory) -> Click and find your recorded videos
Now right click on videos to play using VLC. If VLC player doesn't work then, please open the konsole(terminal) application and run:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install -y vlc

2) Follow the same method as mentioned above to locate your webcam recordings and selectively delete them.
