Did it ever start since the repair work was done? I hear the starter trying to engage. If you are smelling something burning, it certainly could be the starter. Keep in mind, the larger wire on the starter has 12v at all times. If the only time you see smoke is when starting it, check the smaller gauge purple wire on the starter. Make sure it isn't shorting to something. Also, how was the starter checked?
Listening to the video, it sounds like the circuit is complete and it should be working. Here is what I suggest:
1) Check the wires on the starter motor and make sure they are tight and not pinched or damaged in any way. Do the same with the battery. It looks like the terminals are new, but make sure the wiring that was installed on them is making good contact and tight.
2) Check to make sure nothing is preventing the engine from turning. See if you can turn it manually at the crankshaft using a socket and a breaker bar.
3) Remove the starter and have it bench-tested at a parts store. Most will do it free of charge.
If you have already done all of these things, let me know. Also, if you are seeing smoke, be careful. It can catch fire. Check to see if either of the battery terminals is hot.
I have a feeling either we have a loose connection, a bad starter, or the starter wasn't reinstalled correctly and is preventing the starter from turning.
Let me know.
I just watched the video again. I copied a portion of it and have attached it below. What am I looking at in this pic? Is that power to the starter? I can't tell for sure, but it looks like the positive cable goes from red to black. Let me know.
