    I can't see the video, but the first place to look is behind the diving board or near the light about 5' from the edge of the pool for a raised box. The junction box for the light has to be a foot above the water and at least 5' away from the edge.

    Has this light ever worked? If so, where did you turn it on/off at? That is the first place I would start looking for power. Scratch that, Check the circuit breaker box to make sure all breakers are on then look for a GFCI that may be tripped.
