You can't measure resistors while they are actually soldered in a PCB as the measure is influenced by other components of course. we need to rely on the numbers print on them and the one on the right in your video (as I wrote) reports 224 = 220k ohm while the left one if it's "010" it means 1 ohm wh...

You need to check if there's already a voltage divider on the PCB (I don't see it but I can't confirm just form a picture). The best way to check, if you can, is to apply 1VDC to the ADC and see the reading; if close to 1024 then no voltage divider confirmed. A good voltage divider I do use is 100K/...
