Not up to the usual Veproject/Munchausen standard, I'm afraid.

In the beginning of the video one can briefly see that there is something attached to the backside of the vertical support at the position of the axle. Once the action starts it is easy to see that the operator is apparently "pumping" with his left leg, probably stepping on a simple pedal arrangement linked to the axle assembly on the backside of the vertical support. The motion of the device is jerky, because of the small radius of the crank throw on the backside of the vertical support.

It's a neat idea, the "visual weight" imbalance causing motion. Unfortunately the apparatus and presentation aren't quite up to par.

The real light mill: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crookes_radiometer

Read carefully the thermodynamic explanation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crookes_radiometer#Thermodynamic_explanation

Also this is interesting https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crookes_radiometer#All-black_light_mill

It is not "light pressure"!

This is mysterious enough and it took some time till the thermodynamic explanation was found.
