What is this chin rest
What Chin rest is the guy using in his video? https://youtu.be/uQhZg59KzoY
It looks comfortable. I am currently using the Kreddle chin rest and it’s so painful and makes my shoulders and arm sore.
Looks like a Berber or possibly Ohrenform.
I agree, and yes, they can be comfortable.
Its center mounting limits the possibilities. Could be Ohrenform as Andrew Hsieh suggests or a Varga - or the more common Strad or Guarneri.
Side vs center mount is a very individual choice. Some people find themselves more comfortatble with something closer to center while others find themselves more comfortable with something more to the side. When did you get the Kreddle? Is it the old edition (with the flat chin plate) or the new edition (with the more contoured chin plate)? If you have the new version, have you tried the other chin plate? Have you tried a variety of configurations?
If your shoulder and arm are so sore, it's a big technique issue—not a chinrest issue.
Looks like one of these:

I used to play on this chinrest, Berber. Loved it and still have it! Switched to Kaufman recently but might go back at some point.
