Welcome to PF.

The picture you attached says "compass points north". That is the answer.

Are you confused that the point of the needle is the magnets S pole? Ignore that. N attracts S, so we make the S end of the compass needle look like an arrow that points N.

That is clearly explained in the video. It demonstrates the "principle" explained in the video and the "applications" explained in the video.
