Hard to tell from the video, but sounds like a rocker is way out of lash.

My limited experience is that a higher rpm clattering knock is often rod bearings. A deep knock at idle is often crank.

yeah, definitely distinguishable now at higher rpm's that a rod bearing is busted :/ engine has alot of miles on it so it's not really a surprise but still something I wasn't expecting and sucks because it's my daily and I have to drive it to work with the knocking noise
