The video has surfaced at a time when the tensions between India and Pakistan are running high in the wake of the Uri attack.
Musharraf, who stepped down in 2008, is the first military ruler in Pakistan's history to be tried for high treason, a crime punishable by death or life imprisonment, according to legal experts.
His imposition of emergency rule and suspension of the Constitution in 2007 are viewed as treason.
Weeks after assuming office for the third time, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had in June 2013 informed Parliament about the filing of high treason charges against Musharraf.
