Pull it out and take it to AutoZone. I happen to think it's your starter. Mine cranked super slow when the starter went.

I noticed my car cranked much faster with a new battery. I didn't watch your video, but if it's cranking slow, its either battery, alternator or starter.

edit: sounds like a battery to me.

edit2: Did you try pumping the gas to get fuel delivery? If not, try that and see if it catches.

edit3: Turn the key and pump the gas to try and get fuel delivery.

starter is working, sounds like its turning the engine over slowly but correctly, possibly it might of caught it.
Check the battery voltage while cranking.
Sounds like the battery maybe going bad as possibility.

Try jumping it.

If your battery is anything below 12.7 volts its dead.

tap the accelerator with your foot, open it slightly up, do not open it up fully.
What he said. Don't floor it. Just tap it lightly to try and get a little more fuel in to try and start it. If it starts, and then dies right away without being able to run on its own, it's either an alternator or a battery. But if it has been out in the cold, there could be cold fuel in the lines that you just need to force out.

edit: But the morale of the story there is a high chance it is either a battery or alternator. What is the date on the battery? And has it ever died/run down before?

I took a battery from my Daily Driver (Honda Accord). It cracks faster, but it does not start. It might be the alternator problem. what do u guys think? thanks anyways

Try jumping it. The alt is just to recharge the battery, if it is bad it will still start on a jump but will drain the battery while driving.

Once it is running then check ALT output it should be at least 13v.

Then belt could just be loose if output is low.

Battery is good then.

You have fuel and spark?

Did this just happen out of the blue?

Did you check all grounds?
