Unfortunately, I think that your situation is even worse than you initially thought. From watching the video couple times, and even pause it at the 17sec mark I can clearly see that your U shape timing chain guide has no plastic on it at all. It can be clearly heard the sound of the screwdriver metal to metal. The plastic part of your timing guide collapsed and felt into your oil pan, and the ticking what you hear is the timing chain slapping into the timing cover. I might be wrong, to make sure, remove the lower oil pan and inspect for plastic pieces.
If you run the engine again you might ruin it. You need a timing job ASAP on that engine .Your U shape guide looks like the one listed here
And it should look like this:
Sorry for you !!!
