Can you do a video of it running and have a look around the engine with it running.

It does all depends on what's went wrong but it really doesn't sound good. It has probably lost oil pressure which will ruin the whole engine. It sounds as if it losing compression as well, the hissing noise. Might be cheaper buying a whole car spares or repair (with good engine obviously) and use the engine and scrap the rest.
