Send the instructor a link not the actual video! The video should contain a clear description of the research problem, and your approach to solve it with recorded demo of your solution. Donot show source code in the video. If your work involves interaction using gestures, use two cameras; one to record the user actions and a second to show the screen (or you can use a screen capture software to have better quality recording of the screen).
