Are you sure you are turning the plug to the left, counter clockwise?

Are you sure you are on the drain plug of the engine's oil pan?

I'm concerned that you are either turning it the wrong way or are on the wrong fitting.
Same here. But as far as I can tell I'm doing it correctly. I don't really see another bolt like this one under my car, and the shape of the metal above it looks like the drainage area I've seen on Youtube video for my car. And I'm turning it counterclockwise.
At 4:42 the guy is taking off the nut. The metal there looks like mine and I'm turning it the same way he is. I can't really tell where under the car the bolt is at because the camera angle there is very confusing.

I could make a short video but the day is getting dark and there's not much light left for my camera. Been working at this since 1pm and now it's 7pm.
