Not a bad idea for a video blog with how-tos, but I'd be more
concerned with the accuracy and overload...

Accuracy:  in the example linked above, Ubuntu has no root password by
default, so your title and some of the instruction are incorrect.
You're changing your own user password, not the Root password.  To
set/change the root password, you'd need to enable that for the root

Overload:  Half of that video is about setting up a firewall and has
NOTHING to do with changing any passwords, and isn't even mentioned in
the description of the video.

So there's at least one example (the first one I looked at) that shows
a good bit of room for improvement.

That being said, I like the concept, it just needs some polish.
