@S. Phrenic
press vol up + menu + power much longer. The s3 mini logo appears 2 times and then recovery mode comes up.
if this doesn´t help, try ADB method

1. Download and install Android SDK
2. Connect the phone to the PC via USB
3. Press Win key+ r and type cmd
4. Type adb reboot recovery
5. Done. Phone should reboot into recovery

Good luck

In the video I'm showing 3 different things:
1. Vol Up + Power + Home
2. Vol Down + Power + Home
3. Vol Up + Vol Down

Non of them work. I checked your video, I don't see how I do anything different.
Duration change, check! I've now held it for 3 min.

I've got a S2 plus laying next to me and I can get into download mode without any trouble. This means I know how to get into recovery and download mode without any trouble.

Does my phone need to be turned on for the adb method?

it says, error: device not found
Kies doesn't see the device... because it's not powered i'm assuming..

Think I found my problem.... USB debugging is disabled... I think.... as I can't remember enabling it

Yes it needs to be turned on to system with adb debug, or to custom recovery.
For emergency mode in kies I think you need download mode as well.
You don't need adb debug enabled to use download mode, but for some reason you can't enter dl-mode
