### I was not impressed with the video.

I was not impressed with the video. The 2 x 2 example was written out using a marker and a pad. The material wasn't always well organized on the pad. I expect the student would have seen a very similar presentation on the white board in class. Furthermore I noticed two occasions where the lecturer was careless about the terms he was using. Although these incidents were both minor, he should have been much more careful before putting his lecture up on YouTube.

### Nothing fancy but it is effective.

This is a video of a handwritten demonstration of how to calculate eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Nothing fancy but it is effective.
