I can't watch the videos, but I will make one observation.

The closest thing that we have to a reference is the microwave background radiation. With careful observation of it's temperature you will slight variations. For example if you are moving relative to it's frame of reference you will see blue shifting in "front" of you and redshift "behind."

It's kind of interesting the level they took modeling the motion of the planets when the basis was the earth was fixed. It was kind of amazing. In fact Copernicus' revelation was in a large part driven by the insane complexity of the model of the day. His model was so much simpler.
