As already pointed (for a few who thought otherwise) that video is compressed into a time-lapse, and is faster than actual speed.
Based on my experience (and the helpful clues provided), that is the SADDE SIX arrival to Los Angeles....a common "STAR" (S
oute) when arriving from various points to the North and Northwest of LA.
This is how it's charted and depicted:
Also, looks like it is an MD-80, and the camera was mounted on the glareshield, in the center. Most jets have two forward windshields, and a center
window column....the MD-80 has three forward windshields, one in the center, two either side. One of the pitot tubes can be seen in the video.
Here's a photo of the nose and windshields of a Delta MD-80:

I say a Delta MD-80 (the landing lights that shone on the runway give it away as an MD-80, too) because it parked at Terminal 6 (Gate 68A). Delta
(at the time of this video) was primarily in Terminal 5, but had gates shared with Continental in Terminal 6. Might still be a similar arrangement,
since the Continental/United merger. In any case, Continental no longer has any MD-80s in operation. Not for many years.
If interested, you can see the taxi route they took, after landing on Runway 24R.
LAX Airport Diagram here
They had to cross the left, parallel Runway (24L), after taking the "high-speed turnoff" AA ('alpha alpha') on runway exit. That ties to one of
three taxiways that provide access from the 'North Complex' to the "South Complex' (as they're called). Taking taxiway 'AA', they turned left
on taxiway B ('bravo').
The turn onto the ramp, to get to the gate, was made at taxiway C7 ('charlie 7'). After waiting for the emergency equipment to go by.
In the video you can see the airport lighting and signage, if you look closely ( and freeze-frame!
). Signs that label a taxiway are black on
yellow (If on an active taxiway, the sign is black background with yellow letters, and if approaching an intersection it is yellow, with black
Runway signs are in red, with white letters.
Taxiways are painted with solid (continuous) yellow centerlines, runways with white dashed (and wider). At major airports, major taxiways are marked
with green centerline lights for night --- runways use white centerline lights, when installed.
