      In the video it sounds like it's got compression.

      What are your high and low side pressures?

      The compressor will not turn on if the refrigerant is low. Checking that is step 1 in any A/C diag...it sounds like you skipped right to step 5.

      EVAP solenoid won't cause a no-start.

      Check the ignition coil. They often quit and/or act funky, especially after being wet.
