pronunciation: why and white

Hi tqc,
Till recent time I thought that there are the same vowels in the words "why" and "white".
But this man

pronounce these two words in different ways.
English vowels are extremely difficult for my russian ears.
Could you tell me,
1) Do you pronounce "why" and "white" in the same manner?
2) Where are you from?
