At the end of the video, it looks like you can see the apron is sort of wobbling in the slot on the top of the leg. I don’t remember ever seeing a table leg attached like that. Did you try driving some shims or small wedges in the gaps to see if that helps? If that helps, I would glue them in. If you can get the leg off, you could glue some veneer on the apron of the cheeks of the slot on the legs to make it fit tighter. If you use hide glue, you’ll be able to reverse it later if it has to be repaired again.
