Self hosted video can be responsive or player host always the same file?

If you are self-hosting the player, you can certainly make the video URL dynamic:

var myVideo = ''  //you can set this dynamically with other code on your page
  file: myVideo  //without quotes here so we load the variable value

This is possible only in self-hosting the player? Where can I read more about it?

No, this is possible with cloud-hosted players as well. Only the single-line embed codes from your account dashboard would make it difficult to dynamically change the video URL.
