Hopefully the power go to the switch, I couldn't find a good pic for power to light. It is basically white to white and black to black and ground to ground( if you got them)

Recessed lights are wired no different than any other kind of light. The upside is that they come with their own junction box attached.

IMO YouTube is only second to Home Depot for giving out anything from bad to dangerous advice.
