How to install eev with M-x list-packages and how to navigate its tutorials
This is a very basic video about Emacs and eev.
The easiest way to install eev in Emacs is with `M-x
This video shows how to do that and how to navigate its
tutorials with the keys `M-e', `M-j', and `M-k'.
The three most basic keys of eev are `M-e' (eval), `M-j' (jump), and `M-k' (kill).
The fourth of the three most basic keys is `<f8>'. It is explained below.
There's more info on this video here.

My talk at the EmacsConf2021 was about "test blocks".
Here are links to its page, slides, and video, but if you understand
how <f8> works - explained in the video above at 10:20, and
in the image below,
...then you can try to copy & paste the block below to an
Emacs buffer and type <f8> on each line. Don't worry if
the bullets lose their red color after copying; they will
behave as red stars anyway. The block below -
...downloads a local copy of a video and plays it with mpv.
If everything works there then you should also be able to
play the video from Emacs by running `M-x find-eevnavvideo'.
