Sounds like you might be low on gas (134A?)Can you see the center of the Compressor pulley, stopping and turning, over and over constantly? (Clutch engaging and disengaging, the outer pulley part still in motion, via belt)
That's usually a symptom. Then finally it gets so low on gas, it will not turn at all.
'Round here, you can purchase gas at the parts house. The Fellers at Autozone and Advance Auto, will get you the correct can(S) you might need. Here, they may even help you install it! You may need Gas ONLY, and NOT OIL. Too much oil will hurt things, if your oil has not leaked out, you should be good.
Other than taking it to a shop, I think the parts house will be your next best inexpensive option.
I'm one to Talk, I've driven Jeep CJs since 1981. The only freon ever put in my rig, was transporting it to another vehicle!
