Oh yes it does..

But strictly speaking.. no you can't play video's on an iPod photo. The hardware is capable for sure, but the software is not. There is a hack which will allow it to play video's, but it requires that you install Nerdux (linux) onto it, amongst other things. By which time, its not exactly an iPod anymore..
The worst thing about having a failing memory is..... no, it's gone.
