Answer to Self Descriptive Number Puzzler

Did you try out James Grime's (singingbanana on youtube) number puzzle from this video?

He has released the answer video which you can watch here...

It turns out a lot of people took the same approach I did, which was to simply try out possible solutions.  This method fairly quickly leads to a solution.  And I was pretty pleased with finding it!  But James Grime wondered if that one solution was the only possible solution.  Turns out that it is.  Watch the video to see the different ways that were used to solve this problem.  It's pretty interesting stuff!
