Have not watched the YouTube but if the small screw on the bottom of the valve is corroded, it may crack when you try to remove it. In that case, I typically just replace the entire valve. Just take it to Home Depot or ??? and they can match it with the correct replacement part.

Good luck.

I would do more investigation, it could be a slow leak building up all day or just settling like you suggest. i would remove the shower head one morning let few minutes to stabilize, then put a dry bucket under and check hours later.
