Front tie rod play at 26k miles, this normal?

Just want some opinions on how bad this is? and what I should replace it with? should I do the inners too? Any input at all is appreciated. Note the car is on jack stands and I'm twisting fairly hard but I didn't think any play was acceptable. I did take this car in last year to the dealer when under warranty and they told me the front end wander is due to my rear sway bar which was incredibly frustrating Play is present on both sides but slightly less on one side.

That's normal, it is supposed to move like that.
I don't see any play but movement, yes.
Maybe I'm not seeing it in the video.

okay cool wasn't sure any amount of movement was acceptable. I'm guessing my alignment is the culprit. Just to be clear the car follows the grooves in the road and the wheel will rotate itself over potholes. Just doesn't track the way it used to when new, its sorta a chore to keep the car in lane at higher speeds. I'll be doing poly radius rod bushing and control arm bushing as well as putting my car back on coilovers and getting an alignment soon and I thought id get some input. Thanks for the responses.

Could be worn wheel bearing, car will track all over when they are worn badly.
