My response in (US) English:

I'm watching this in 2019!

It has been 1 year since I watched this.

The last time I watched this was in 2018.

I'm watching this in 2019 means you plan to watch it in the next 11 months.

It has been 1 year since I have watched this. The last time I have watched this was in 2018. You are looking back from the present, if you use past perfect you look back from a point in the past. For example: you watched something in July 2017. In the summer of 2018 you watch it again, after not having watched it for 12 months. If you are talking about that moment in the summer of 2018 at this moment, January 2019, you use past perfect. In the past it had been a year since you had watched it.

Correction: The last time I watched this was in 2018. Sorry.

If I've watched the video before which was in 2018 and then I come across this video and watch it again in 2019 then I need to say:

I'm watching this in 2019 now. It has been 1 year since I watched this. The last time I watched this was in 2018.

Right? m8.

Don't use "now" and 2019 together. Either you are watching it now = at this moment, or you will watch it in 2019, which is in the coming months. It has been 1 year since I have watched this, you haven't watched it from February 2018 until now so you have to use present perfect.

Am I right?

Alright, I'm trying to make it cake-mix clear right now and I got this

past perfect > look back from a point in the past.
-you watched something in July 2017.
-Watch it again in summer 2018
-after not having watched it for 12 months.

talking about past right now = use past perfect

Am I right?

Past perfect is used to talk about the past from a point in the past. If you are talking about the past from the present, use past simple, if you are talking from the past to the present, use present perfect. There are lots of free sites on the internet that explain the grammar rules clearly.
