I watched your link frame by frame, looks like blower drive issue causing the engine to hydraulic.
From normal engine to the first event frame one cylinder out dumping raw fuel, second frame all cylinders out dumping raw fuel, third frame "kaboom".
So with normal TV being 59.94 frames per second we will call it 60 divided by 3 frames equal 0.05 seconds from normal to boom.
