What's the meaning of out in this case?

Oh and out on watching the vid. I learned my lesson on that.

The word "Out" here most likely means "I'm out" or "Count me out" on the plan to watch a vid.

It's not specified in the context but the speaker had a bad experience previously. ("I learned my lesson on that.")

So this time he isn't going.

This was a perfect opportunity to make fun of M. Night Shyamalan! Although he's probably got his fill of that fun. –  shinyspoongod Jun 19 '12 at 15:10

It might be a verbal abbreviation of "over and out", meaning the same thing that Cool Elf said, "Count me out".
