it's better to ask a professional mechanic to check for you.

At first it looks like your alternator is bad. But when it fires it makes it seem like its the starter. If possible, remove your alternator and take it to be tested. Lots of auto parts stores like NAPA will test them for free. Easiest way to rule it out.

But double check your battery too, and all of the connections and of course the ground. Make sure nothing is loose.
