Question 2012 Cooper S won't start (video)

Hi guys, I've been on holiday vacation for a month and when I came back to my car it won't start. I tried jumper cable on it..the head lights come on and it's making an attempt to start but fails. Here's the video: https://vid.me/u8M4 Any suggestions?

Test your battery. It should read 12.6 volts. Anything lower than 12 volts and it will need to be replaced. It also could just need to be charged because a month of sitting is a long time. Next time you leave for a month, invest in a battery tender so that it wont die when you leave.
