Noticed in first shot replacing the driver's side, inside brake pad that Ethan installed the passenger's side brake pad on the driver's side as the wear indicator isn't the correct orientation.
Wear indicators should be facing up, not down on a leading edge caliper.

Dont you have to bleed the brakes after that? Or does that only apply if you change the brake fluid aswell?

That price from Kwik Fit is ridiculous; it cost me £80 to replace the front brakes and pads, on a similar hatchback car, at my local garage.

Don't grease the face of the disc where the wheel meets. It can cause issues when torqueing the wheel - the wheel will be torqued up, and as you drive down the road, it can loosen the bolts as the grease gets squeezed out.
Those screws on the rear discs are not required. They just hold it in place whilst the wheel is fitted.

Did he just randomly roll the jack under and start jacking away? On the seam of the sill?

Probably where it all begins.
This makes me wonna learn my brother how to do basic repairs on his car.
He's also not that into the DIY stuff so I guess I fall into the same camp as this video.

I used to be a "DIY mechanic"
. Untill I realised it was cheaper to give it to an expert, rather than spend 2 days on a job that should take 2 hours.
Or when I changed a broken camshaft in my Transit van, thought I was a legend as normaly the engine has to be removed and flipped to stop the valves falling down. I used magnets to kep them in place and it actually worked👌
but it still wouldnt start! spent a week tinkering, gave up and put a new engine in. Still nothing
In the end I found the original PATS immobiliser was the reason for it not starting up and I had wasted £500 and a week of my time. 😂😂😂
Pulled out a relay and stuck a bit of wire in. Boom
Never again lol

FYI don't use copper grease on the mating face between the disc and wheel, just the centering ring in the middle. The acceleration and braking forces are all transferred through friction between the mating faces, which is created by the clamping force of the wheel fasteners. With grease the forces can be taken by the studs or bolts laterally, where they are only designed to clamp inwards.
I have had cars that needed a mallet to get the wheels off the first time, then with the mating faces cleaned and greased only on the centering ring they have subsequently come off without any problems. That is where all of the corrosion grips the pieces together, not the flat mating faces. Also clean up the matching parts inside the wheel.
That said, Ethan did great.
