Any thoughts on how to replace this?

Or what kind I need. Can't seem to find any instructional videos. Thanks in advance!

Your photos are little too up close. You might want to back away more and let us see the whole window then draw our attention to the details.

However, if its what I think...The bottom of the window has a thin vinyl strip that has deteriorated away. And it no longer seals when closed.

Short of window replacement you can get weather stripping and glue or tack it on.

Its a door, and it looks like a brass or copper fin type of friction weatherstrip. Also looks like someone put a foam or felt weatherstrip against the door stop. Both are available in rolls and they nail on. Bulb weatherstrip kits are also available in an aluminum extrusion.
