Have picked the 3 most effective tutorial videos.
All 2.ed since there is significant difference in the Command Points sequence rules. 1. ed videos will confuse new players.

From Player Aid - a single video. Can we hope for more?:

Wow! I highly don't recommend Players Aid. The guy made a big big big mistake within the first move. And not like oops I forgot. More like he's been playing the game incorrectly. Not good for people trying to learn the game. Please stay away until it's corrected.
<edit: I love the Players Aid channel to death. And think Alex and Grant are amazing, and do a wonderful job. Im not at all trying to disrespect any of them with my comment. Its just that this game, to me, is pretty unforgiving with the rules >

If you want to learn or view examples of how to play this game correctly.
I recommend: Chris Hobbs and Callasmar. They made very few minor errors (if at all) and corrected them.
Gimpy Gamer and also Counter Attack did a great job and is of better/recent filming quality.

And <unfortunately> due to the unforgiving nature of this game, I recommend you see as many playthrough as possible. Because, as I said you sometimes need to see some precise actions in order to understand the rules. i.e using a jeep, or off board artillery, or sniper retreating, aid stations. This stuff isnt shown in all playthroughs. So you might want to search for an example.

Hate to say it, because I want more FoF videos, but I agree with Christopher. I second all his recommendations.

Thanks for the warning on Player Aid video.
Agree on Callesmar and Chris H. -but they are long. Takes hours to watch. And importantly they are based on 1.ed. with a very different Command sequence.
My short list is based on relative short play time and 2.ed.

Player Aid vids have some major errors.
Be careful to learn from them.

- But it shows that FoF plays very well with mistakes and missed rules!
No need to be frustrated.
Start playing and have fun!
