What determine the location of a new part origin in the assembly file? Because in my file, assembly file origin & new part origin become same. But in a YouTube video both are different.
The templates for each have the origin in them. If you create a new part in context of an assembly, the part origin may not be in the same place as the assy origin.
When you model a part in-context of an assembly, the point of origin is never the same and something that I don't worry about.
The only time it's the same is if the part is on top of another part or a part within a part like the toy monkey barrels where one barrel is inside another barrel and so forth, those barrels would share the same point of origin.
But if you were to draw a box 12" square and model individual parts that would be made from "Bottom" up modeling then you would make the part and always have the point of origin in the center of each part, then when you assemble those pieces to complete the assembly you would see that each point of origin are 12" from each other etc...
If you would see my models you would see that the point of origin is always at the same place, but the part is off to one side or the other. When I insert a "New" component (in-context), into an assembly I always pick the front plane for the insertion and then I close that sketch and open a new one where I want the part, that has huge advantages when doing top down modeling...
I'm kind of anal about having the part being modeled around the part origin but I've gotten over that in the past years.
You're worth a lot teachin gold dog - I just can't stand it when you show origins and they are all over like doggy doo doo in the yard, I want mine all in one place, nice and tidy............lol
From the image I see, I see 2 right planes, to front planes and two top planes. Though they are different sizes, there's nothing to say they're offset from each other.
When you create an in-context part, you're asked to select a plane/face to place it on. Which ever plane you select will be the front plane for the new part, so if you select the front plane of the assembly, the part will be aligned with the assembly.
on the odd occasion I create an in-context part, I will select the front plane of the assembly, the close the sketch, and start a new one on the surface/plane I want to begin the part on. That way the origin and planes remain aligned.
Part file is attached
I appear to be running an older version than yours. So I've created a file of my own.

I do not see a part file attached, only an assembly file with no parts?
Did your instructor cover the significance of parts and assembly files?
Can you attach the file Container.sldprt ?
I guess without the YouTube reference that I don't really understand the question.
I am sorry I made a mistake. Now I have attached the both.
I agree with the others.
Also, although you can't move the origin, you can change how the part is oriented in its views.
