I'd appreciate a explanation of the difference between Salve and Salvete

Salve is for greeting a single person, and salvete is for a group.

You say "salve" to one person, and "salvete" to more than one.

Salvete is something like "Greetings!" But obviously in english you dont use "Greeting!" instead of "Hello!"

La pronuncia ha l'accento inglese e non mi pare corretto. Per pronunciare correttamente il latino ci vorrebbe uno speaker italiano. C'è qualcuno d'accordo con me?

No, non sono d'accordo. Questo è latino, non italiano.

This is the Classical pronunciation and both speakers used do a good job.
