This is a great idea, and a good educational video. I noticed a couple of 
things I thought were maybe slightly wrong as I watched it - I don't suppose 
you have a script you could show us, as that would make it easier to comment?

Also, I'm not sure it's best to call this 'Basics'. 'Fundamentals' maybe would 
be a better word. I would worry that it will look rather confusing and maybe 
offputting if this is used to introduce people to Linux audio. Maybe the 
first thing people see should be something a bit less theoretical, like a 
walkthrough in Ardour or something?

I think it's an excellent overview of the underlying system though, well done 
for doing it.
