Default 2006 STI starts then dies. Can anyone tell me what's wrong with it? (w/ video)

FIXED: Bad fuel pump. Fuel pressure test on the feed line confirmed that the fuel pump wouldn't hold pressure. Used pump assy from ebay fixed the problem.

2006 STI
Invidia N1 Race Catback
Cobb AP Stock-like OTS map (though problem exists whether I'm stock, stock-like, or Stage 1)

The car turns over just fine. Sometimes it starts right up. Sometimes it turns over a few times and then starts. Sometimes it doesn't start at all. Usually it starts eventually. Problem used to only occur when the car was hot, now it occurs even when cold.

I replaced the fuel pump relay but it didn't help. I think my next step is going to be a fuel pressure test.

Anyone have any idea whats wrong with it? What I should test next?

Thanks in advance!
